A.J.P. Taylor - a gentleman scholar in the old style; a non-conforming radical from the north of England; an academic steeped in Oxford traditions; a late 20th-century British media personality; one of the most outstanding historians of his age. C.J.Wrigleyas biography brings out fascinating, hitherto unrevealed details of this extraordinary manas life. It gives a vivid picture of his pampered childhood, his rivalry with Hugh Trevor-Roper, his complex relationships with women, and his time as a teacher, broadcaster, historian and incorrigible bAote noir to many another scholar. Taking into account Tayloras own conviction about historyas place at the heart of national consciousness, this full and enthralling portrait of a highly complicated figure assesses his achievements as both man and historian.113 114 115 116 117 118 119 120 121 122 123 124 125 126 127 128 129 130 131 132 133 134 135 Roberts, 29 January 1944. ...
