Elizabeth Angela Marguerite Bowes-Lyon'the ninth of the Earl of Strathmore's ten children'was born on August 4, 1900, and, certainly, no one could have imagined that her long life (she died in 2002) would come to reflect a changing nation over the course of an entire century. Vividly detailed, written with unrestricted access to her personal papers, letters, and diaries, this candid royal biography by William Shawcross is also a singular history of Britain in the twentieth century.

Deliver us from evil : peacekeepers, warlords, and a world of endless conflict by William Shawcross( Book )

34 editions published between 2000 and 2014 in English and held by 1,217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The end of the Cold War was followed by a decade of regional and ethnic wars, massacres and forced exiles, and by constant calls for America to lead the international community as chief peacekeeper. The efforts of that community - identified with the United Nations but often dominated by the world's wealthy nations - have had mixed results." "Shawcross, a veteran of many war zones, has had broad access to global policymakers, including UN secretary general Kofi Annan, high American diplomats, peacekeepers and humanitarian-aid professionals. He has traveled with them to some of the world's most horrifying killing fields. Deliver Us from Evil is his report on the many crises faced by the international community and its servants as they struggle to respond around the world. He brings home the price many have paid attempting to restore peace and help alleviate terrible suffering. He illuminates the risks we face in a complex and dangerous world."--Jacket
Queen and country : the fifty-year reign of Elizabeth II by William Shawcross( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2005 in English and Chinese and held by 1,170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The year 2002 marks the fiftieth anniversary of Elizabeth II's accession to the British throne. To celebrate this occasion, William Shawcross, an award-winning writer and journalist, has written an intimate and revealing portrait of the Queen and an absorbing narrative of how the faces of the monarchy, Britain, and the world have changed over the past fifty years. Britain today bears little resemblance to the country the Queen inherited in 1952. There is more criticism than deference; the institution of the monarchy is no longer accepted unquestioningly. Yet, as Shawcross describes here, Elizabeth's long and valiant, sometimes difficult, always challenging reign shows us a monarch who has risen admirably to the occasion and has held the country and the commonwealth together. Drawn from the BBC's landmark four-part television series, Queen and Country combines personal recollections, classic archive film, and contemporary footage, as it examines how the Queen has adapted and succeeded. Exploring several aspects of her public role, including her relationships with successive prime ministers, Shawcross shows how she has remained a fixed point in the storm, a reassuring bedrock of stability, calm, and good sense, who has earned the respect and affection of the world. With more than one hundred photographs, this volume focuses on four parts of the Queen's life. The first explores the central relationship between the Queen and her subjects. Her private life is the subject of the second part as Shawcross describes how she enjoys horse racing, her dogs, shooting, and family life. He also discusses the turbulence of her children's marriages and lives. Part III focuses on the Queen's political role as head of state and explores how close she is to the center of decision making. The final part follows Elizabeth II as she travels the globe and strengthens the ties of the commonwealth. Written with the cooperation of the Queen's family, friends, and her trusted aides, this unique portrait accompanies the celebration of her golden jubilee that will be one of the most televised and written-about events of 2002. Queen and Country is the most authoritative account of Elizabeth's reign that will appear during this year-long celebration
Murdoch by William Shawcross( Book )

24 editions published between 1992 and 2001 in 3 languages and held by 957 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Moving from Fleet Street newsrooms to Park Avenue boardrooms, from Murdoch's big wins to the night he almost lost everything, Shawcross provides the first truly objective picture of Murdoch. We see the "King of Tabloids" who pushed yellow journalism to new shades while championing the values of allies such as Reagan and Thatcher. We see the compromises, the broken promises, the betrayals, but we also see the brilliance the savvy, the unfailing popular touch, and the spark of a man whose high-wire swing around the earth must be understood by anyone who hopes to understand the world of business today - or tomorrow. Scrupulously reported, Murdoch - like its subject - is big news."--Jacket
Counting one's blessings : the selected letters of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother by Elizabeth( Book )

11 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 820 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"William Shawcross's official biography of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, published in 2009, was a huge critical and commercial success. One of the great revelations of the book was Queen Elizabeth's insightful, witty private correspondence. Indeed, The Sunday Times of London described her letters as "wonderful ... brimful of liveliness and irreverence, steeliness and sweetness." Now Shawcross has put together a selection of her letters, drawing on the vast wealth of material in the Royal Archives and at Glamis Castle. Queen Elizabeth was a prolific correspondent, from her early childhood before World War I to the very end of her long life at the beginning of the twenty-first century, and her letters offer readers a vivid insight into the real person behind the public face."--Jacket
