KIRKUS REVIEW

Talleyrand lived through so many regimes that his life is in itself a panorama of Europe of the period. This biography frankly avows his intention to whitewash him to some extent, to present his best side, and the real contributions he made. Thorough going job with bits of grand writing and a few points where the whitewashing runs a bit thin.
