No historical figure of eighteenth century England has been more grossly misrepresented than the inventor of our favorite fast food. The Earl was a diplomat, parliamentary manager, traveler, and had a lifelong passion for music. The political analysis is subtle, original, and well argued. The intellectural and artistic background, and the human quality of the man whose life was blighted by the madness of a dearly loved wife, is brought before us.
