Book Summary of Talleyrand

Duff Cooper's classic biography charts the remarkable progress of Talleyrand; a silver-tongued master diplomat, infamous turncoat, peacekeeper and libertine. Talleyrand held high office in five successive regimes from France's Ancient Regime, into the Revolution of 1789, Robespierre's Terror, Napoleon's epic wars, and on through restored kings to more revolution. Duff Cooper brings Talleyrand vividly to life and paints an exhilarating picture of this tumultuous period in European history

Mick July 02, 2011 review from Goodreads

Diplomatic services of the late 18th and early 19th century are not much different from today. This was a topic that I thought would be boring, but Duff Cooper has written an excellent book.
