Summary
Produced in association with Correlli Barnett and Churchill College, Cambridge this book provides a fresh view of Churchill's changing attitudes and policies towards the evolving challenges of the twentieth century. It aims neither to denigrate nor engage in uncritical adulation. Studies in Statesmanship contains a series of careful assessments of different facets of Churchill's career made by a group of impartial historians mainly drawn from outside Britain. It is framed by a personal memoir from Churchill's daughter, Lady Soames and a concluding essay by Martin Gilbert, Churchill's biographer. With authors from the USA, Italy, Canada, Denmark, Germany, France and Poland, Studies in Statesmanship deals with Churchill as an energetic statesman in the arena of international politics and his concern to keep Britain independent and influential. A wide range of his interests and concerns are also examined. This book confirms Churchill's assured position as one of the most interesting political figures of the twentieth century
