Gladstone : a biography by Roy Jenkins ( Book )
10 editions published between 1995 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,546 libraries worldwide
William Gladstone was, with Tennyson, Newman, Dickens, Carlyle, and Darwin, one of the stars of nineteenth-century British life. He spent 63 of his 89 years in the House of Commons and was prime minister four times, a unique accomplishment. From his critical role in the formation of the Liberal Party to his preoccupation with the cause of Irish Home Rule, he was a commanding politician and statesman nonpareil. But Gladstone the man was much more: a classical scholar, a wide-ranging author, a vociferous participant in all the great theological debates of the day, a voracious reader, and an avid walker who chopped down trees for recreation. He was also a man obsessed with the idea of his own sinfulness. This full and deep portrait of a complicated man offers a sweeping picture of a tumultuous century in British history.--From publisher description.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt by Roy Jenkins ( Book )
11 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 1,534 libraries worldwide
"Franklin Delano Roosevelt was a statesman whose massive achievements tower over the twentieth century. In a ranking of American presidents, he is rivaled only by George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. He was elected to an unprecedented four terms in office, and his accomplishments in leading the nation through depression and world war resonate to this day." "Roosevelt's presidency was one of the most eventful in U.S. history. He took office in the midst of economic crisis: the stock market had crashed, the banking system had collapsed, and millions of Americans were unemployed. Galvanizing the nation with his 1933 inaugural address and with a flurry of legislation in the First Hundred Days, Roosevelt demonstrated an optimism and resolve that garnered quick support for his administration and for the programs that he called the New Deal. And he was the first president truly to understand the power of the new mass media, rallying the nation through "fireside chats" on the radio and speeches that were the mainstay of movie house newsreels." "Franklin Delano Roosevelt was the dominant president of the twentieth century and helped the United States become the most influential world power. Roy Jenkins's assessment enables us to understand how he accomplished this and why he still stands tall in our estimation today."--BOOK JACKET.

A life at the center : memoirs of a radical reformer by Roy Jenkins ( Book )
15 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 650 libraries worldwide
Roy Jenkins is one of the most important statesmen of our time. He has been a British cabinet minister and party leader as well as a former president of the European Commission. He is now the chancellor of Oxford University. As an ardent Atlanticist, Jenkins has maintained close contacts with the United States throughout his career, helping to forge the links that have characterized the "special relationship" between the United States and Britain. A Life at the Center includes Jenkins's impressions of some of the celebrated people he has encountered - portraits that are often telling vignettes. He writes of the Kennedys, Truman, and Nixon, of LBJ and Margaret Thatcher, of Helmut Schmidt and J. Edgar Hoover, in a revealing and often hilarious way. In this acclaimed autobiography, the two strands of his life, writing and politics, are brought together triumphantly. Jenkins illuminates the people and politics of his times with grace, honesty, and humor. He writes candidly about his career, which was characterized in Britain by pioneering reform and struggles with the country's ailing economy. Jenkins might have been prime minister twice: in the seventies, when he seemed to be Harold Wilson's natural successor; and in the eighties, when the breakaway Social Democrats looked as though they might sweep straight into power. His presidency of the European Commission came at a crucial time, and he was instrumental in creating the European Monetary System, a cornerstone of European integration. He details these periods of strife and opportunity with his historian's insight, coupled with a quality of analysis rare in a work of this kind.

The British liberal tradition : from Gladstone to young Churchill, Asquith, and Lloyd George--is Blair their heir by Roy Jenkins ( Book )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 166 libraries worldwide
"In this wide ranging lecture, Lord Roy Jenkins tells the story of the rise and fall of the British Liberal Party under prime ministers Gladstone, Churchill, Asquith, and Lloyd George, and explores the place of current British prime minister Tony Blair in this tradition. Beginning his address with the Liberal Party's birth in London in 1859, Lord Jenkins discusses the relative success of these prime ministers in dealing with social issues, such as religion and suffrage, and aspects of government legislation including education, foreign policy, and the military. He punctuates this analysis with his views on the personalities of these men, recognizing that the character of leaders naturally shapes their leadership. Of William Ewart Gladstone, for example, Lord Jenkins notes that, while he was 'not necessarily the greatest prime minister,' Gladstone was 'certainly the most remarkable specimen of humanity ever to inhabit 10 Downing Street.'"--BOOK JACKET.
