The ninth volume of this major scholarly achievement covers some of the most dramatic years of Gladstone's eventful life: his political retirement, his return to lead the Bulgarian and Midlothian Campaigns against Disraeli's government, his recapture of power in 1880, and the crisis-ridden early months of his second government. Gladstone's daily diary, his personal correspondence, and the Cabinet Minutes, here published for the first time, offer a wealth of new insight into Gladstone's travels, interests, family, and business affairs as well as into the remarkable sequence of political events of his day.

'meticulous preparation ... Colin Matthew magnificently justifies his claim that "Gladstone's diary ..." should be seen as "one of the central private documents" in unlocking our understanding of the Victorian mentalité.' Times Literary Supplement
