Spanning the statesmans long life, it presents key case studies illuminating the constant and fundamental interplay between reading, life and politics which characterised Gladstones world. Grounded in historical studies and yet methodologically informed, this study offers a radically different understanding of Gladstone, challenging many long-established preconceptions and contributing an important new history of reading to nineteenth-century studies.
