Can you name the creator of the Territorial Army, the British Expeditionary Force, the Imperial General Staff, and the Officers' Training Corps? The man who laid the foundation stones of MI5, MI6, the RAF, the LSE, Imperial College, the 'redbrick' universities and the Medical Research Council? This book restores Richard Burdon Haldane to his rightful place among the greatest figures of British history. John Campbell charts the ups and downs, and reveals the intensely personal side of Haldane through previously unpublished private correspondence, and shows Haldane's enormous relevance in our search for just societies and states today.
