I STAND FOR LIBERTY:'
WINSTON CHURCHILL AS SOCIAL REFORMER
INTRODUCTION

figures in modem history.2 Over the years, there have been several
dozen biographies of him published. Moreover, however one
defines it, and quite apart from whether or not one sides with his
*      B Sc, LL B (Dalhousie), LL M (UC Berkeley); Lecturer in Law, Australian
National University; Of the Bar of Nova Scotia.
I      These are said to have been the opening words of Churchill's first public speech.
See Gilbert, Churchill's Political Philosophy (OUP, Oxford 1981) p1.
2      Churchill's 'official' biography was published in eight volumes by William
Heinemann Ltd under the title Winston S Churchill between 1966 and 1988. The
first two volumes were written by his son, Randolph S Churchill, and the
remainder by Martin Gilbert, a Fellow of Merton College, Oxford. Each of the
volumes of the biography has one or more 'companion volumes' which contain
reproductions of documentary sources. After completing the official work,
Gilbert wrote a single volume abridged biography: Gilbert, Churchill: A Life
(William Heinemann Ltd, London 1991). Reference will also be made to the
second volume of the official biography: Churchill, Young Statesman 1901-
1914, as well as its Companion Volume.
