Chamberlain and Appeasement Summary

Chamberlain and Appeasement: British Policy and the Coming of the Second World War by Robert Parker

This book provides a fresh and original approach to a controversial episode in British history, Chamberlain's policy of 'appeasement' towards Hitler's Germany. Written directly from primary archival sources, Alastair Parker's account offers the student new perspectives on the man who dominated the making of British policy before and after his 'triumph' at Munich in September 1938 - Neville Chamberlain. This study considers his personality, his aims and his methods and the opposition to him from men both within and outside his party.

Chamberlain and Appeasement Reviews

'R.A.C. Parker's book is a scrupulously scholarly synthesis designed to demolish both the original myth and the revisionist fantasy.' - Times 'This is an excellent, stimulating and important book, a version of the appeasement story that will stand for another 30 years.' - Guardian 'Superb. Based on a matchless knowledge of the archives and written with a kind of controlled intensity interspersed with elegant wit, it makes all previous accounts redundant and is of the first importance.' - Kenneth O. Morgan, New Statesman and Society 'You will want to read this book. It is intelligently provocative. It forces one to reconsider the real issues involved in the ongoing debate about appeasemenet, a controversy that has neither lost its historical importance nor its contemporary relevance.' - Zara Steiner, Financial Times 'Parker's work sets a standard at which any dissident will have to aim.' - Independent
