Bryan Niblett has written what will go down as the definitive biography of Charles Bradlaugh as a public figure. A barrister himself, Niblett thoroughly understands and very clearly explains the legal and parliamentary battles Bradlaugh spent much of his life fighting. Since these legal battles occupied so much of Bradlaugh's time and energy, at the expense of private life and family, it will come as no surprise that Niblett's account shares its subject's focus. That said, Niblett provides a detailed and sensitive depiction of Bradlaugh's adult life; which will captivate readers new to the story, and satisfy old friends of Bradlaugh.Readers new to the Bradlaugh story will find a new hero in these pages. Those already familiar with Charles Bradlaugh will definitely want to add this to their bookshelf.
