The Man Within Summary

The Man Within: Winston Churchill An Intimate Portrait by Alison Carlson

Fifty years after his passing, The Man Within is meant to reinvigorate the spirit of Winston Churchill-approachable rather than academic, lively rather than staid. This collection features exceptional black-and-white photos, many of which are previously unpublished, woven together with his own powerful words. It tells his story - his childhood, his family, his passions, his friends, his life-and has been chosen as the official commemorative book of the Churchill Centre on the fiftieth anniversary of his passing. A percentage of royalties goes to the Churchill Centre UK and to other Churchill 2015 charities.

The Man Within Reviews

An absorbing book, well worth owning by anyone from casual browser to the expert.-The Churchill Project These photographs preserve flashes of the personality of a great man. At a time when the study of greatness is too often undervalued, Carlson's book makes an important contribution to the works available on one of the greatest figures of the twentieth century. -Chartwell Bulletin A most welcome addition to the canon of Churchill photobiographies, this new volume is one of the handsomest yet seen, and filled with rarely seen images from the entirety of Churchill's career. -Chartwell Booksellers

About Alison Carlson

Alison was born in the English Lake District, but raised all over the world. She spent four years of high school in Mexico City, and after completing her University degree in the United States, she moved to the Middle East, where she was able to follow her passion and work as a photographer. She has been married for twenty-six years to another Churchillian, with whom she raised two daughters in San Francisco. During this time she kept connections with England through her antique clock business. Alison has a lifelong interest in Churchill stemming from her parents, who lived through WWII in England, where her father became a Squadron Leader in the Royal Air Force. She has participated on the board of the US Churchill Centre and can be found frequently in the Churchill War Rooms in London.
