To celebrate the centenary of the 1911 Parliament Act, John Bercow, Speaker of the House, instigated a series of public lectures in which current parliamentarians assessed the careers and characters of parliamentary giants. In this volume, Philip Norton introduces eleven lectures on politicians from David Lloyd George to Tony Benn, including Shirley Williams's lecture on Nancy Astor, Nicholas Soames on Winston Churchill and Andrew Adonis on Roy Jenkins. With a foreword by John Bercow.
