Palmerston The Early Years 1784-1841 Kenneth Bourne

Among modern British Statesmen only two, Gladstone and Churchill, have sat longer in the Commons and none has rivalled the length of Palmerston's years in office. Probably unrivalled too were his dedication to hard work, his popularity in the country and his amorous exploits. Traces Palmerstone's early career in vivid detail: from a childhood of aristocratic gentility and his years in Parliament to the break with Wellington and his first term as Earl Grey's foreign secretary.
