Harold Perkin, Guardian 'Norman Gash's Sir Robert Peel shows how high and austere academic writing about a major figure is compatible with an outstanding general biography. Roy Jenkins, Observer 'In Mr Secretary Peel, the first volume of this biography, he provided a rich and perceptive portrait of a statesman in the making. Now at last he has completed one of the great biographies of our time.

sir
i have purchases both the volumes of Sir Robert Peel. Both the volumes are best books/ biography written by Norman Gash. I found this magnificent book on Amazon display and first enjoyed first volume and then ordered the II vol of Mr Norman Gash. Very informative, lucid and good biography of great reformist Prime Minister of UK If anybody wants to study this period of England history, this is very supportive book and still not written so good a biography by any other writer

Really interesting expecially for an Irish reader as it gives the English perspective on Ireland in the context of overall English politics. Great detail.

Robert Peel is well served in this definitive and exhaustive two volume biography. Gash writes well and his research is extensive

Peel is one of our most remarkable politicians both as prime minister and perhaps even more as Home Secretary and party leader. Among his many lasting achievements were the creation of the metropolitan police and the Tamworth Manifesto which forged the modern Conservative party and took it far from the shadow of Wellington and reaction. He laid the ground for Disraeli's one nation conservatism

Peel was a pragmatic realist, always garnering the facts before deciding an issue and believing that gradual, incremental reform was achievable and likely to be lasting in a way that radical measures were not: evolution not revolution, building on the past not expunging it. In this his great forebear was Burke. Between the two of them they gave the Tories an eminently sensible and appealing platform and an enviable ability to win elections

Peel was a politician of complete integrity, uncanny tactical ability, and was the titan able to master the House of Commons, impressed as everyone was by his oratory and agility in debate.

He deserved no less than this biography and he is well served by it.

The author does a fine job of making Sir Robert Peel come to life as a man of his times. Peel was in the center of British political life in the early 1800's and was also a politician who believed in making political choices that were morally right. Perhaps we should make reading his biography mandatory for our modern-day politicians
