NEVILLE CHAMBERLAIN: THE PASSIONATE RADICAL
Neville Chamberlain is remembered today as Hitler’s credulous dupe, the man who proclaimed in September 1938 that the Munich agreement guaranteed ‘peace in our time’.
In Neville Chamberlain: The Passionate Radical, Water Reid delivers a radical re-assessment of one of Britain’s most controversial prime ministers (1937–40), which shows him to be one of the most effective political leaders of the twentieth century. It reveals the nuances of a complex and sensitive man who was a true radical and a man of passion, especially in all that concerned the welfare of his fellow citizens.
