Summary
While W.K. Hancock may no longer be described as ?Australia?s most distinguished historian?, he has some enduring claims to our attention. No other Australian historian - and few elsewhere - can match his ?span?, to use one of his watchwords. Hancock was a major historian in four or five fields, who himself made history by going on a mission to Uganda for the British government in 1954 to mediate the future of Buganda after its ruler had been exiled. A Three-Cornered Life is a superbly written and thorough biography of one of the finest twentieth-century historians
