Sir Robert Peel : statesmanship, power, and party by Eric J Evans( Book )

25 editions published between 1991 and 2006 in English and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sir Robert Peel: Statesmanship, power and party provides an accessible and concise introduction to the life and career of one of the most celebrated political leaders of the nineteenth century. Perhaps best known for seeing through the repeal of the Corn Laws, Peel had an enormous impact on the political life of his age and beyond. Eric J. Evans reassesses Peel's career, arguing that although Peel's executive and administrative strengths were great, his arrogance, lack of empathy with the development of political parties and his inflexible commitment to economic liberalism presented political problems that he was incapable of solving." "This expanded and fully revised second edition: fully engages with the extensive new historical work on Sir Robert Peel published since the first edition appeared fifteen years ago; and includes a glossary of key terms plus an updated and expanded bibliography, including listing useful websites."--Jacket
