As Archbishop of Canterbury from 1928 to 1941, Cosmo Gordon Lang guided the Anglican Church through some of the greatest upheavals of modern times. History has not always been kind to him; he is often seen as a conservative figure, resistant to change. This first new biography in more than half a century presents a sympathetic portrait of this intellectually gifted, emotionally complex man, and reveals his precise role in the abdication of Edward VIII.Slightly off-mint.
