Lord Selborne was a good House of Commons man and this experience enabled him to carry through legislation in the House of Lords when he was Lord Chancellor.
He had skill in parliamentary business and political influence, but above all he had the will and determination to see reforms put into effect. The most important of those carried out by him were procedural, and included the reform of the courts of law which involved the building of new courts and introducing new rules to unify court practices outstanding was the introduction of the originating summons in 1883.
But the book is not just about his parliamentary career, it is a comprehensive biography covering his entire life span.
