The Aristocratic Adventurer


Every book tells a story . . .
And the 70 titles in the Pocket Penguins Series are emblematic of the renowned breadth and quality that formed part of the original Penguin vision in 1935 and that continue to define our publishing today. Together, they tell one version of the unique story of Penguin Books.

David Cannadine is one of Britain's premier academics, essayists and broadcasters, whose books have brought erudite and entertaining social history to a wide audience. As General Editor of the Penguin History of Britain series he embodies Penguin's commitment to quality, accessible history publishing. This piece from Cannadine's acclaimed Aspects of Aristocracy takes a wry look at Winston Churchill's upper-class origins.
