The clever author of The Mirrors of Downing Street has brought together a series of critical and biographical studies, presented as reflections from the mirror in the Imperial council chamber, of thirteen typical Britons who have done noteworthy work during the years of the war and who are now grappling with the problems of the peace. The name of the author is not given, but he is evidently one who has had intimate personal association with the statesman and administrators whose characters he presents. Contents: Mr. Lloyd George; Lord Carnock; Lord Fisher; Mr. Asquith; Lord Northcliffe; Mr. Arthur Balfour; Lord Kitchener; Lord Robert Cecil; Mr. Winston Churchill; Lord Haldane; Lord Rhondda; Lord Inverforth; and Lord Leverhulme.
