Wellington by Paul Cox( Book )

5 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This new book about the 1st Duke of Wellington provides a novel take on the traditional biography in that it explores the life of this complex man through portraits - of Wellington himself, his friends, family and associates, as well as his political and military allies and opponents. There are examples of painted portraits by Goya and Thomas Lawrence, several caricatures that illustrate Wellington's political career, and a watercolour by George Chinnery that shows the future duke as a young Major-General at the Chepauk Palace, Madras being received by Azim al-Daula, Nawab of the Carnatic, in February 1805. Also reproduced is a rare photograph, a Daguerreotype, made by Antoine Claudet on the occasion of Wellington's seventy-fifth birthday in 1844, and sections of a sixty-six-foot roll from the Collection of the National Portrait Gallery depicting his entire funeral procession.0William Hague contributes a lively introduction to Wellington's political achievements and his role as prime minister at a time of great social and political change, assessing his contemporary reception and contribution to the development of modern Britain. Paul Cox explores Wellington's military career and the battle of Waterloo, which remain central to his story, but also examines his personal relationships, his legacy and his enduring place in the popular imagination. Finally, a narrative chronology presents a useful overview of Wellington's life and times.00Exhibition: National Portrait Gallery, London, UK (12.3.-7.6.2015)

A formidable orator, campaigner and tactician, Wilberforce spearheaded the twenty-year-long campaign to abolish the trade in slaves that was one of the great abominations of the eighteenth century. William Hague illuminates Wilberforce's turbulent life and career, offering a politician's insights into the parliamentary maneuvers and electoral dramas with which the abolitionist had to contend. He shows how Wilberforce's conviction and faith allowed him to hold fast to his independence and beliefs even in a time of war, revolution and social upheaval. And he demonstrates how the eradication of the slave trade paved the way for the abolition of slavery itself in the British Empire
