About the Author

John Campbell is recognised as one of Britain's leading political biographers. In addition to Edward Heath, which won the NCR Award in 1994, and his highly praised two-volume biography of Margaret Thatcher (2000 and 2003), his subjects have included Lloyd George (1977), F.E. Smith, Lord Birkenhead (1983), Roy Jenkins (1983) and Aneurin Bevan (1986). His most recent book, If Love Were All- The Story of Frances Stevenson and David Lloyd George, was published in 2006. He is currently writing the authorised biography of Roy Jenkins.

Reviews

One of Britain's finest political biographers... a rattling good read -- Ian Aitken * Guardian *
While pistols have long since gone out of fashion, the tradition of the political duel, as John Campbell's delightful book suggests, is far from dead...a wonderfully, irresistibly compelling read -- Dominic Sandbrook * The Telegraph *
These eight studies are lively, penetrating, intelligent and, like all Campbell's work, exceptionally well written -- Philip Ziegler * Spectator *
A good introduction to British politics -- Iain Macwhirter * The Herald *
A joy to read: meticulously researched, beautifully written and scrupulously fair * Observer *
