Pressestimmen'Jones and Underwood ... have produced a work that stands as a model of its kind. [They] are to be congratulated on a compassionate and sensitive study, which embraces every possible aspect of their subject's life from high politics to intellectual endeavour.' The Ricardian ' ... a complex portrait, quite unlike the traditional one-dimensional picture of a pious, nun-like benefactress.' The Times '[The authors'] diligence has paid handsome dividends, allowing them to draw a rounded and unusually intimate portrait of their subject.' The Times Literary Supplement
