Book Description:

John Wilkes (1725-1797), the founder of British radicalism, had the reputation of being a rascal. Neglected by historians, this is the first researched biography since 1917 to investigate the career of this political maverick and moral reprobate. While not concealing his personal failings, the book emphasises the political skill and integrity of the man George III referred to as `that Devil, Wilkes'.
