From the cover: “Lord Ramsey of Canterbury, Archbishop of Canterbury from 1961 to 1974, died on 23 April 1988. During the sixties and seventies he was approached several times by authors and publishers with the suggestion that his life should be written. On this, however, he had strong views: that it was wrong to publish anyone’s biography while he or she lived. He therefore courteously rejected all applications. But in 1980 he invited Owen Chadwick to be his biographer when the time came. He handed over to the author the materials he possessed, and obtained for him free access to the Lambeth Palace archives.
