Fairleigh Dickinson University Press, 1979 - Biography & Autobiography - 335 pages
This "rhetorical" biography attempts to answer two questions: Why did Lord North rise to high public office? and How did he reduce the Opposition in the House of Commons to virtual impotence within two months after he became prime minister?
