[XXIX] 775pp. Index. Bibliography. Cover art by Tom Simmonds. | First Edition (First Printing).Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Facsimiles; From the cover: “In Volume I of his biography, Mr. Randolph Churchill presented, with impeccable documentation and admirable objectivity, the life of Winston Churchill from his birth in 1874, through schooldays and experience as cavalry subaltern in India and the Sudan, and as war correspondent in the Boer War, to his return to England where he was elected, at his second attempt, as Tory MP for Oldham.Volume II takes the story of Churchill's life from there to the outbreak of the Great War in 1914. On 14 February 1901 Churchill took his seat in the House of Commons at the age of twenty-six. He was poised for that career of Shakespearian dramatic scope which was to take him through success and denigration, through years in the political wilderness while lesser men compromised; firm in his own beliefs he became the dogged and inspiring symbol of a world at bay.This volume shows explicitly the forging and tightening of that mainspring which drove one man for so long. He felt instinctively what was right and no consideration of political expediency influenced him. Within an hour of subscribing to the Oath Churchill went into the division lobby and voted against most of his Party's leaders. He swiftly showed himself to be a rebel of independent mind. For example: Churchill ‘If I were a Boer I hope I should be fighting in the field; Churchill, being warmly cheered by the Leader of the Opposition on his maiden speech; Churchill becoming a Unionist Free Trader and being disowned by his local Conservative Association and the dramatic moment when he crossed the Floor of the House on 31 May 1904 to join the Liberals and sat down in the seat on which Lord Randolph had stood, waving his handkerchief to cheer the downfall of Gladstone in 1885.By the end of 1905 Churchill was Undersecretary of State for the Colonies. As Randolph Churchill says ‘While he was a backbencher Churchill had spoken as if he were an Under-Secretary, now as an Under-Secre-tary, as if a member of the Cabinet, and when he reached the Cabinet he was apt to speak as if he were Prime Minister'. Neither did he confine his activities to politics. In 1906 his Life of Lord Randolph Churchill was published and quickly established itself as one of the outstanding political biographies in the English language.Churchill joined the Cabinet as President of the Board of Trade in April 1908, was then defeated at Manchester by Joynson-Hicks, won Dundee on May 9, and married Miss Clementine Hozier on September 12. This marriage was to survive until Churchill's death at the age of ninety and, as the author says, ‘proved the sheet anchor of his career'. The courtship and early married life is illustrated by vivacious extracts from the many letters that have been preserved.Forging ahead with remorseless energy, the next few years brought Churchill unceasing toil and a wide variety of new responsibilities and alliances. His collaboration with Lloyd George began. There was the Parliament Act and Churchill's relentless attack on the Lords which infuriated not only Dukes but also the King who said Churchill's speech was ‘full of false statements of Socialism in its most insidious form and of virulent abuse against one particular class, which can only have the effect of stirring up “class against class” and of stirring up the worst passions of its audience'. While at the Home Office and then the Admiralty his problems included the formidable Irish Question, the votes for women campaign, the Sidney Street siege, riots in Wales and the inevitable drift towards war with Germany.When the storm finally broke he wrote to his wife from the Admiralty ‘Preparations have a hideous fascination for me … yet I would do my best for peace, and nothing would induce me wrongfully to strike the blow. I cannot feel that we in this island are in any serious degree responsible for the wave of madness which has swept the mind of Christendom'.At forty, Churchill the statesman met his responsibilities in the face of world, catastrophe as he was to, yet again, when he was sixty-five.” Further details, photographs, etc. are available, just use the «Ask Bookseller» button and I'll be pleased to help.

Cover art by Rick Pracher. | First Edition (First Printing).Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; From the cover: “Billy Graham has touched the hearts and souls of millions with his message of faith. Now, for the first time ever, Dr. Graham tells his life story in a momentous work of insight. Hailed as the world's preacher, his calling as an Evangelist has taken him to every nation, from Europe to Asia, from major capitals to the most remote outposts. His Crusades have spanned fifty years, and he has been part of history in the making and friend to every president since Eisenhower. A pioneer in social issues (he refused to preach to segregated audiences in the South), he has led by his extraordinary example of integrity.In Just As I Am, Billy Graham looks back at it all with down-to-earth warmth and candour - remembering his dairy farm upbringing, his early preaching experiences, and the overwhelming international response to his public ministry based on his unshakable belief in Christ.Billy Graham Crusades have reached more than 200 million people in person, and millions more have heard him on radio, television, and film. He has been welcomed behind the Iron Curtain, into China and North Korea, and on every continent. And, at a time when many public figures seem scandal-prone, Dr. Graham maintains an unimpeachable reputation and powerful presence by managing his organization scrupulously, limiting his personal earnings, and urging cooperation rather than competition among all religious people.Just As I Am reveals Billy Graham to be as forthright and engaging as ever as he reflects with plainspoken immediacy on his private life. As he shares his own spiritual journey, he writes movingly of his everyday joys and struggles, and of his profound commitment to his wife, Ruth, and their family.Discussing his relationship with heads of state as diverse as Queen Elizabeth II, the Shah of Iran, and Kim II Sung, Dr. Graham also shares such memorable encounters as his plane trip with civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. , when an engine caught fire, and his tragic unsuccessful attempt to warn President John F. Kennedy, Jr. , about the danger of his trip to Dallas.Dr. Graham details his friendships with nine U. S. presidents, beginning with Eisenhower and including Johnson and Nixon and continuing to this day with Bill Clinton. As Dr. Graham points out, When a president of the United States, for example, wept in my presence, or knelt with me to pray, or privately unburdened his concerns about his family, I was not thinking about his political philosophy or his personality but about his need for God's help.This is an inspiring story of how a man of God grew into a man of great influence. Examining his life and ministry from the wise and humble perspective that has made him one of the world's most beloved and respected leaders, Billy Graham's Just As I Am is an unforgettable portrait that will be treasured by readers everywhere.” Further details, photographs, etc. are available, just use the «Ask Bookseller» button and I'll be pleased to help.
