Norman Gash s magnificent two-volume life of Sir Robert Peel Mr Secretary Peel (1961) and Sir Robert Peel (1972) is the standard work on the great statesman, and is widely considered one of the great biographies of nineteenth-century prime ministers. Faber Finds is delighted to return both to print. In this second volume, Gash focuses on the years between 1830 and 1850, the height of Peel s political career, which included his two terms as prime minister, the controversial repeal of the Corn Laws, and his reform of the Conservative Party. In ... his masterly biography, covering Peel s career from the Reform Crisis to his untimely death in 1850, Professor Gash shows himself not merely an admirer but an emulator brilliant intellect, master of detail, man of conservative but humane conscience. Harold Perkin, Guardian Norman Gash s Sir Robert Peel shows how high and austere academic writing about a major figure is compatible with an outstanding general biography. Roy Jenkins, Observer In Mr Secretary Peel, the first volume of this biography, he provided a rich and perceptive portrait of a statesman in the making. Now at last he has completed one of the great biographies of our time. Philip Ziegler, Daily Telegraph Sir Robert Peel by Norman Gash ranks with the great political biographies of the past, a classic work in both scholarship and presentation. A. J. P. Taylor, New Statesman
