In a memoir as unconventional as his career, Asa Briggs seeks 'to trace those personal relationships which have most shaped my work as an historian and, indeed, my whole life'. Acknowledging the influence of friends as various as PD James, Jim Callaghan and John Reith, he documents five decades of his pioneering work in universities at home and abroad, reminisces about his early life in Yorkshire and explains his special interest in the Victorians.
