Item description for The Seventh Earl of Shaftesbury, 1801-1885 by Geoffrey B. A. M. Finlayson...

Anthony Ashley Cooper, born in 1801 and, from 1851, the Seventh Earl of Shaftesbury, occupied a remarkable position in nineteenth-century England. In this scholarly interpretation based on an exhaustive exploration of the manuscript archives, Geoffrey Finlayson sets him securely in his historical context, at the same time bringing into relief both his private and public lives. The author reveals, with masterly control, this highly complex "Eminent Victorian" as a most powerful challenger of the evils of the contemporary world with a commitment and energy that inspired respect, loyalty and great affection. The book fully explains Shaftesbury's deep moral and political outlook, as well as his social thought, and coherently links his concern with government legislation to his own charitable enterprise. Shaftesbury's pioneering work in the areas of factory, public health and housing reform is persuasively illuminated, as are his relationships with other leading figures of the time, including Cobden, Peel, Palmerston, Gladstone and Disraeli.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Seventh Earl of Shaftesbury, 1801-1885?

A very detailed and complete biography of Shaftesbury.  Nov 5, 2004
I wrote my A level course work essay on the Seventh Earl of Shaftesbury,and therefore read all the books on him I could get my hands on. So I feel I can give you a sensible opinion that will be some help. Finlayson's is the most recent biography and includes analysis of the others. It a long read, but what I liked about it was that it went into lots of detail. So when I wanted information on a paticular event of his life such as a piece of legislation he was trying to pass, it was Finlayson I consulted. That is not to say that his book includes everything, there are many others that are well worth reading. Gerogina Battiscombe's book is beautifully writain although I felt a bit one sided, whereas Finlayson's is more balanced. There are others like "Shaftesbury" by Best and ofcource the original biography approved by Shaftesbury, a beast of a book (three volumes) which I shyed away from- however if you've got the stamina for it. So if you're researching Shaftesbury this book will be lots of help.
