Description


Burying Caesar is a gripping account of the mechanisms and motivations that underpin politics in Britain, forces that are as powerful today-on both sides of the Atlantic-as they were more than sixty years ago.What were the political machinations that kept Neville Chamberlain in office during the 1930s and deliberately kept Winston Churchill out Was Churchill the prophet of uncomfortable truths during his "wilderness years," or was Chamberlain right to pursue appeasement These are just some of the questions Stewart answers in his original and engaging book. He examines the dynamics and deep-seated rivalries within the Tory party, pitting Chamberlain's partisans against Churchill's. While Chamberlain appeased Hitler at Munich and urged isolation at home, it was Churchill who emerged from his wilderness with his distinctive voice of moral authority and bulldog conviction. And in the end, history proved Churchill right.
