Synopsis

From humble beginnings in Bolton, William Hesketh Lever rose to become the owner of a business empire that straddled the world. He was variously a soap-boiler, a social reformer, a Member of Parliament, a tribal chieftain, a multimillionaire and ord of the Western Isles. This book looks at the man and his beliefs.
