Churchill and the Soviet Union

David Carlton

Published by Manchester University Press

  • In the already vast literature on Churchill, no single work has focused on his changing attitude towards the Soviet Union
  • This is the first project to isolate just one major theme in Churchill's lifeExplores whether or not Churchill was consistent through forty years and examines the possibility that perceptions of domestic political advantage may have shaped his course more than high-monded and disinterested evaluations of evolving Soviet intentions and capabilitiesChurchill still arouses a great deal of general interest, and a work which challenges a number of preconceptions, as this book does, will undoubtedly appeal to the general readerA clearly argued, revisionist study of Churchill's views about and dealings with the Soviet Union
  • It will be part of the growing historical literature that seeks to reassess Churchill
