Mr. Churchill has selected for these twenty-five essays on Great Men of our age, many personalities with whom he has been intimately acquainted, and this particularly applies to that notable group of British statesmen, Balfour, Joseph Chamberlain, Rosebery, Morley, Asquith and Curzon. Other essays range from King George V and Roosevelt to the ex-Kaiser and Hitler ; from George Bernard Shaw and Lawrence of Arabia to Trotsky and Hindenburg. Each study is self-contained, but the volume as a whole presents the political and historical scene from the closing years of the last century to the mid-i930's. The volume contains a photographic portrait gallery in which each of the personalities appear, and reproductions of letters written to the author by Asquith and Lawrence. 309pp. Index. Size: 8vo Demy (8½" x 5½") Dust wrapper in protective, removable sleeve.
