    schema:reviewBody ""The Fifth Earl of Rosebery was the most glamorous Liberal politician of the late Victorian age. Charismatic, enlightened, wealthy and intellectually brilliant, he captivated the masses with his soaring oratory and charmed colleagues with his scintillating wit. As a young man, he said that the had three ambitions: to marry an heiress, win the Derby and become Prime Minister. By his mid-forties, he had achieved all three. With his public following and unrivalled political gifts, he was the natural successor to the premiership when Gladstone retired in 1894. Although his spell in Downing Street was brief, he remained a glittering political star into his old age, never losing his appeal as an imperial statesman." "Using a wealth of archival material, award-winning author Leo McKinstry reveals the contradictory personality that lay behind the public figure. For all Rosebery's magnetism, he was tortured by self-doubt, extreme sensitivity, loneliness and insomnia. Every aspect of this compelling story is covered, including his devotion to horse-racing, his literary achievements and his complex, often anguished, private life. Adored by society beauties and even a princess, he never remarried after the tragic early death of his Rothschild wife, prompting continual gossip about his sexual inclinations." "Through original research, Leo McKinstry provides a host of fresh insights not only into Rosebery himself, but also his involvement in some of the most controversial episodes of the era, from the Jameson Raid to the trial of Oscar Wilde. With its fluent style and strength of analysis, this is a portrait of the last Liberal peer in Number Ten."--Jacket." ;
