Leslie Mitchell is Emeritus Fellow of University College, Oxford, and the author of The Whig World as well as biographies of Charles James Fox and Lord Melbourne.
Mitchell's book is a kind of spin-off from his outstanding biography Melbourne-mature reflections on the nature of Whiggism. It is written, with a splendid sense of balance, at times the author clearly with whig self-satisfaction, at others a reluctant admirer. * The English Historical Review *
