Summary:
"Sir Robert Walpole's ministry (1721-1742) was the longest since the Revolution of 1688. Though he is often called 'the first Prime Minister' Walpole was, Brian Hill suggests, both less and more than his modern counterparts. Less because the term itself was not generally accepted, least of all by Walpole himself, more because he was in practice more powerful than most of his successors"--Jacket, p. [2].
