Martinet, of the memoirs of the notorious public life, and colourful private life, of the late Right Honourable Charles-James Fox. <br />xiv, 324 pp. Charles-James Fox (1749-1806), was a prominent British statesman whose opinions in favour of the American War of Independence became some of the most radical ever to be aired in the Parliament of his era.<br /><br />Fox's parliamentary career spanned 38 years of the late 18th and early 19th centuries, and he was the arch-rival of William Pitt the Younger.
