9780002111225: George Canning

The symbolical paH;s of tlie Scriptures are inyested with peculiar attractions. A familia Tacquaintance with them can scarcely ML to increase respect and love for the Bible. This is especially true of the symbols of Christy as significant representations of his character and officework. They surround him with new charms as Mediator and Saviour. He never appears more emphatically the chiefest among ten thousand, and altogether lovely, than when he is viewed through some of his more appropriate emblems. A few of the more prominent symbols of Christ are contained in this volume. There are others which the Christian may study with pleasure and profit. Not one 1can be found on the sacred page that is not worthy of close and patient examination. f The same truth may be found in different symbols. Where this is the case, the author has endeavored to avoid repetition by developing the truth in one place only, with a brief allusion, or entire omission, in others.

Product Description:

`Wendy Hinde has used the new material to produce a life which is not only the best book on Canning which has yet appeared, but one that will not easily be surpassed. She has performed admirably the fundamental task of all political biography: how to combine a clear and satisfactory account of the historical context with a vivid and convincing portrait of a personality...this is a satisfying and valuable book.'Norman Gash, New Statesman `Miss Hinde manages the eternal compromise of biography: striking the right balance between the central character and background events, with great skill.'Leslie Mitchell, THES Miss Hinde's book is a distinguished work of historical biography. Its scholarship seems to me faultless and its narrative power considerable.'Roy Jenkins, Observer `This life of George Canning is the best of those that have been produced about this remarkable statesman...it is most enjoyable and instructive to read.'Lord Butler, The Times `Altogether this is an ambitious project, well executed, and an admirable biography of one of Britain's more attractive statesmen.'TLS From the age of Pitt to the age of Peel, Canning dominated British politics. A gifted orator and debator, he towered above his rivals in the House of Commons. M.P. at twenty-three, Foreign Secretary at thirty-seven, and Prime Minister at fifty-seven, Canning ranks among the most distinguished statesmen in history. Few can fail to be fascinated by this compelling and controversial figure.
