Biographers, historians, and contemporaries examine key features of the political life of MacMillan, who resigned as British Prime Minister in 1963. They look at his political visions, skills, and successes and failures in his personal life as well as his domestic and foreign policies. The 15 papers, from a September 1996 conference at Cambridge, take advantage of the recent release of official papers dealing with his career. Annotation c.

'Scholars of the Macmillan years will none the less find a great deal to interest them in this book. If the present view of Macmillan remains, as the editors suggest, that he was 'all style and no substance', there is much here that will serve as a corrective.' - D.J. Dutton, Contemporary British Politcs
