Intellectual, crusader, patriot, bon viveur, bully, conspirator - there were many sides to Hugh Dalton, one of the most effective, and strangest of modern political leaders. In this immensely readable biography of Dalton, the first to have been written, the author not only makes use of official records, interviews and private papers, but also of the hitherto unpublished Dalton Diaries.
There are some stains on the dust jacket. Sticker damage can be found inside. Overall, this is a good reading copy. This is a first published edition.
