"From reviews of individual sets:" .
"Here is real treasure: a new and infinitely more comprehensive Dictionary of National Biography . not only comprehensive, it is splendidly detailed as well." David Starkey, HISTORY TODAY
"Above all there is displayed an unequalled picture of the profession of politics, unique in the prizes which it offers and the penalties which it can impose; an occupation at once supremely powerful and subordinate to the whims of the electorate, addictive yet all too often temporary. Despite the claims of other centres of power, of mercantile, financial and legal bodies or local communities, Parliament emerges from these volumes as much as ever the hub of British life." B.W. Hill, HISTORY
