Beschreibung

| B Format (7¾" x 5¼"). 746pp. Index. | Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the author's introduction: "This biography originated in a series of conversations with the Prince of Wales which began in the summer of 1992, two years before the 25th anniversary of his investiture. With the monarchy itself under sceptical review, it seemed to me likely that the occasion would trigger an appraisal of the heir to the throne, which would be as unrelenting if not so merciless as the scrutiny of his private life essayed by the tabloid media. I was not unaware of the pitfalls which face the author who is foolhardy enough to write about any living person, nor that, in the case of the heir to the throne, these were likely to conceal craters beneath; yet the moment seemed right to me for a full and, if possible, authoritative portrait of the life and character of the Prince of Wales, setting this against the backdrop of the institution into which he was born forty-five years ago and into the context of Britain's sharply altered status in the world over the intervening years."

The book is in stock and ships from the rustic nirvana of Peasedown St. John, near Bath, England from a long-established bookseller - guaranteed by my reputation and the UK Distance Selling Act.

Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

In November 1998 Charles, Prince of Wales was 50 years old and was Prince of Wales for 28 of those years. Jonathan Dimbleby's unique portrait provides a searching and objective study of this complex man, exploring his beliefs and values, testing his attitudes and assumptions and illuminating the man behind the myths presented in the media. By drawing on extensive interviews and conversations with the Prince, 'sitting in' on meetings, formal and informal, both at his beloved Highgrove and in London and accompanying him on public and private visits, the author provides an authoritative account of HRH's life, an exclusive portrait of the individual and his work.

Anbieterinformationen

BookLovers of Bath is based in the rural idyll of Peasedown St. John in Somerset (God's Own Country) in the south west of England and actually very nearly in Bath. After 20 years of being “internet only” I have now opened a shop, Fact or Fable, in the premises of our now-closed Post Office. With over 20,000 books in stock and another 5,000 or so in the shop I run an old-fashioned book business with every book listed, graded, picked, packed and posted by my own fair hand… abetted by my Jack Russells who are really, not, helpful.
