The Life of Bertrand Russell
Ronald William Clark (Author)
DescriptionThis is the eloquent and intimate biography of one of the most significant figures of the last century. Born into the high world of the Whig aristocracy, among people for whom Waterloo was still almost a personal memory, Bertrand Russell lived to inspire the campaign against nuclear warfare. Ronald Clark, with access to a mass of material, provides a fascinating and graphic portrait of the man and there is virtually no aspect of Russell's long life to which something new - and often unexpected - is not added by this remarkable book.
