William Gladstone by Dr. Ruth Clayton Windscheffel William Gladstone, Hardback (June 2012)

William Ewart Gladstone (1809-98) was an MP for over sixty years and four times Prime Minister. This study reappraises Gladstone by focusing on five themes: his reputation; his representation in visual and material culture; his personal life; his role as an official; and the ethical and political basis of his international policies.
