One Hundred Letters From Hugh Trevor-Roper

Edited by Richard Davenport-Hines and Adam Sisman

  • One hundred letters from Hugh Trevor-Roper, one of the most gifted historians of his generation and one of the finest letter-writers of the twentieth century
  • The story of Trevor-Roper's life through his letters - as historian, controversialist, public intellectual, academic intriguer, literature lover, traveller, and countryman
  • From the triumph of The Last Days of Hitler to the embarrassment of the the Hitler diaries episode and his stormy years as Master of Peterhouse
  • Revealing a character full of intellectual sparkle, eager curiosity, and playful irony, who relished the absurdities, crotchets, and vanities of his contemporaries
  • Sure to delight anyone who values wit, erudition, and clear prose
