William Pitt the Younger is an illuminating biography of one of the great iconic figures in British history: the man who in 1784 at the age of twenty-four became (and so remains) the youngest Prime Minister in the history of England. In this lively and authoritative study, William Hague–himself the youngest political party leader in recent history–explains the dramatic events and exceptional abilities that allowed extreme youth to be combined with great power. The brilliant son of a father who was also Prime Minister, Pitt was derided as a “schoolboy” when he took office. Yet within months he had outwitted his opponents, and he went on to dominate the political scene for twenty-two years (nineteen of them as Prime Minister). No British politician since has exercised such supremacy for so long. Pitt’s personality has always been hard to unravel. Though he was generally thought to be cold and aloof, his friends described him as the wittiest man they ever knew. By seeing him through the eyes of a politician, William Hague–a prominent member of Britain’s Conservative Party–succeeds in explaining Pitt’s actions and motives through a series of great national crises, including the madness of King George III, the impact of the French Revolution, and the trauma of the Napoleonic wars. He describes how a man dedicated to peace became Britain’s longest-serving war leader, how Pitt the liberal reformer became Pitt the author of repression, and how–though undisputed master of the nation’s finances–he died with vast personal debts. With its rich cast of characters, including Charles James Fox, Richard Brinsley Sheridan, Edmund Burke, and George III himself, and set against a backdrop of industrial revolution and global conflict, this is a richly detailed and rounded portrait of an extraordinary political life. From the Hardcover edition.

William Pitt the Younger re-examines Pitt's career in the light of recent research and emphasizes that it should not be stereotyped as having a `reformist' phase in the years to 1793 and a `reactionary' phase thereafter. His treatment includes explanation of: * Pitt's rapid rise to power * the importance of his relations with George III * contemporary party politics, including his own description of himself as an `independent Whig' * his administrative and financial reforms in the 1780s * his foreign policy and war strategy * his plans for assuring a satisfactory political union with Ireland and why they were frustrated. This volume by Eric J. Evans, includes a complete historical background to the leader's political career and analyses his achievements. The author outlines Pitt's economic, domestic and foreign policy as well as detailing the changes in party politics and monarchy during the period.

All political actors of the 1790s are assumed to fall into "radical" or "conservative" camps according to the strength of their reactions to the French Revolution. The response of the Younger Pitt to that revolution remains unclear and has been contested by historians for the past two centuries. Based on an in-depth analysis of Pitt's actions as Prime Minister, this exciting new study claims that he was intellectually and emotionally untouched by the French Revolution and by the ideological considerations of the revolutionary era. This is essentially a biographical study of a man whose political legacy has been fought over by his heirs and followers. Jennifer Mori's careful and innovative analysis provides the chronological background and detail that enables the reader to assess Pitt's actions at home and abroad and to determine that legacy both as a man and as a political leader.
