With a Foreword by Anthony Sampson

Reviews

Patrick Duncan is a well researched, readable, balanced, but not uncritical biography. Driver has admirably captured Duncan's eccentricity, psychological complexity, decency, and especially his courage. - F.A. Mouton in JOURNAL OF COMMONWEALTH & COMPARATIVE POLITICS
