Victor Gollancz

(1987)
A Biography
A non fiction book by

 
Victor Gollancz was a teacher, publisher, author and campaigner who spent his life passionately trying to make people see the truth as he saw it. If it's as a publisher that he is remembered above all, nonetheless in many ways he epitomised the social conscience of the mid-twentieth century: he founded the Left Book Club, Save Europe Now and the Campaign Against Capital Punishment. For this biography, first published in 1987, Ruth Dudley Edwards had access to all the Gollancz family and firm papers, and produced an honest, searching work which not only reveals an extraordinary man but throws light on many of the political and social events of his times.
'Frequently gripping and always readable.' John Gross, Observer
'Consistently enthralling and a brilliant achievement.' Hilary Rubinstein, Spectator
'One of the fullest and richest portraits of a contemporary individual we have had.' Anthony Curtis, Financial Times
'I would trust anyone's life to Ruth Dudley Edwards.' Terence De Vere White, Irish Times
