A. J. P. Taylor: Radical Historian of Europe -- By C. J. Wrigley
[From the Publisher]
A scholar gentleman in the old style; a northern non-conforming radical; an academic steeped in Oxford traditions; a late-20th century media personality; one of the most outstanding historians of his age: A.J.P. Taylor was all these things. He wrote about traditional historical subjects in a traditional manner and took narrative history to new heights and was equally at home with a critical academic, as with a vast popular, audience. C.J. Wrigley's new biographical study includes fascinating and hitherto unknown details of Taylor's privileged and cosseted childhood, the effect of his close but combative and stimulating family, the dissenting and nonconformist tradition, and his time as a teacher, broadcaster journalist and historian.
