Abstract:

"A.J.P. Taylor is an historian to be ranked along with Gibbon and Macaulay, and Chris Wrigley's biography makes clear reasons for his stature. But it is not in the least hagiographical -- this is A.J.P. Taylor warts and all. The assessment is consistently critical, pointing out his need for reassurance, wounded ego, and underlying humanity as well as his intellectual aggressiveness and brilliance. The judgment throughout is balanced and clear. Based on a complete mastery of sources, this is a biography that will be read throughout the world and used as a work of reference as well as interpretation."--Wm. Roger Louis, from dust jacket.
