Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The goal of British governments in the interwar period was balance among the European great powers - balance which would restore peace as well as a British prosperity based once again upon international trade. In the end, these grim years brought only economic depression and the challenge posed by the fascist dictatorships in Germany and Italy. In British Politics and Foreign Policy in the Age of Appeasement, 1935-39, historian R. J. Q. Adams examines the policy of appeasement - so frequently praised as realistic and statesmanlike in its day and commonly condemned as wrong-headed and even wicked in ours. In this exciting and thoroughly accessible work, he explains the motivations and goals of the principal policy-makers: Neville Chamberlain, Lord Halifax, Sir John Simon and Sir Samuel Hoare, and of their major critics: Wiston Churchill, Anthony Eden, Duff Cooper and Sir Robert Vansittart. He discloses the myths which obscure our understanding of the Stresa Front, British rearmament, and Anglo-French alliance and the highest moment of appeasement - Munich.
