The Forgotten Prime Minister: The 14th Earl of Derby

Volume II: Achievement, 1851-1869

Angus Hawkins

  • The first ever biography of the 14th Earl of Derby
  • Makes full use of Derby's papers and extensive archive - as well as recently discovered sources
  • Completely revises the conventional view of Derby's personality, career, and significance
  • A book that is likely to seriously modify our understanding of nineteenth-century British party politics, the history of the Conservative party, and the nature of public life in the Victorian age in general, including some of its most prominent figures
