Elizabeth II: The Steadfast

Author(s): Rt. Hon Lord Douglas Hurd


Just as this book is being published, Elizabeth II will become the longest-serving monarch who ever sat on the English or British throne. Yet her personality and influence remain elusive. This book, by a senior politician who has spent significant periods of time in her company, and is also a distinguished historian, portrays her more credibly than any other yet published.
