An enthralling portrait of a remarkable man and a remarkable time. But this book covers the years up to 1898, when he was appointed Viceroy to India, and only one chapter is devoted to the gloomy years after 1898. But the book does not suffer at all from this arrangement, since after 1898 Curzon's career was downhill.

One of England's most noted scholars, and author of George V, superbly evokes the world of the ruling class in late Victorian Britain. Full of anecdote and incident, it captures the life of George Nathaniel Curzon, who served as the Viceroy of India. Born into a family and culture in which privileges were taken for granted, Curzon still believed robustly in the "civilizing mission" of the British Empire. Aside from the remarkable Curzon, such illustrious figures as Oscar Wilde Gladstone, Balfour, and others put in finely drawn appearances.
