Great Contemporaries comprises twenty-one penetrating profiles of political and literary luminaries. An utter delight to read, beautifully written and brutally opinionated (Hitler comes off just a bit better than George Bernard Shaw), the ensuing “Revised” edition (and most future reprints) added four new profiles: Lord Fisher, Charles Stewart Parnell, Lord Baden-Powell and President Franklin D. Roosevelt.
This new paperback edition contains five profiles and nearly 30 black and white photographs not included in previous editions, as well as an introduction by volume editor James W. Mueller, who also edited and introduced the 2009 paperback reissue of Churchill’s THOUGHTS AND ADVENTURES (see item 15047).
