Abstract: Pamela Statham-Drew’s account of Stirling’s governorship is very detailed and will enhance his reputation for competence. Statham-Drew has been well served by the publishers. This is a handsome volume, with good maps and generous colour illustrations. The author was well qualified by earlier research to undertake this work, and she has had access to family archives, not previously researched. The result is an excellent biography whose detail only occasionally interrupts the narrative flow. It will be definitive for at least a generation.
