About the Author

William Hague was born in Rotherham in 1961. While at Oxford, he was President of the Union and of the University Conservative Association.He has been MP for Richmond, Yorkshire since 1989. He joined the Cabinet in 1995 as Secretary of State for Wales, and was leader of the Conservative Party from June 1997 to June 2001. This is his first book.


The life of Britain's youngest prime minister ever (he came to office at age 24) and one of its hardiest: he lasted 17 years. Hague knows his stuff; the former Conservative Party leader ran against Tony Blair. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

'A weighty and scholarly biography ... the empathy, indeed the identification of subject with author, is remarkable. Hague deserves an accolade ... he has written a serious, detailed and thoughtful study of one of Britain's greatest prime ministers' Guardian 'Truly fine ... The need for a distinguished, readable, single-volume work has long been recognised. William Hague has now triumphantly filled this gap' Scotsman
