The Austen Chamberlain diary letters : the correspondence of Sir Austen Chamberlain with his sisters Hilda and Ida, 1916-1937 by Austen Chamberlain( Book )

18 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 459 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is a collection of the diary letters of Austen Chamberlain from 1916 to 1937. These letters provide a valuable insight into the political life of one of the leading Conservative politicians of the inter-war period, and constitute a detailed record of Conservative and national politics at this time. They provide particularly valuable personal accounts of key events such as the negotiations of the Irish Treaty in 1921, the troubles leading to the Carlton Club revolt of October 1922, the Locarno agreements of 1925, the leadership crisis of 1930-31, and the backbench campaign against the German threat in the 1930s. Chamberlain felt free to express his most candid feelings and emotions in the privacy of these diary letters and, as a result, they throw much valuable light upon arguably one of the most misjudged politicians of the age, and one who has certainly been overshadowed by his more famous father and half-brother."--Jacket
Neville Chamberlain : a biography by Robert C Self( Book )

13 editions published between 2006 and 2017 in English and held by 324 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

History has not looked kindly upon Neville Chamberlain. Despite a long and distinguished political career, his trip to Munich in 1938 and the 'appeasement' to Hitler have forever overshadowed his many other achievements and blighted his reputation, his name now synonymous with the futility of trying to reason with directors and bullies. Yet, as this biography shows, there is much more to this character than is generally supposed, and even the infamous events of 1938 are open to more charitable interpretations than is usually the case

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Foreign policy has determined much of New Labour's time in office and cast a consistently long shadow over British politics in the period since 1945.

The heir apparent, 1928-33 by Neville Chamberlain( Book )

7 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As a primary source of historical evidence and insight, it is difficult to overstate the value and importance of Neville Chamberlain's diary letters to his sisters. They represent the most complete and illuminating 'insider' record of British politics between the wars yet to be published. From 1915 Chamberlain wrote detailed weekly epistles to his sisters until his death in 1940; a confidential account of events covering the quarter of a century during which he stood at the very centre of Conservative and national politics. Beyond the fascination of the historical record of people and events, these letters are extremely valuable for the remarkable light they throw upon the personality and character of the private man lurking behind the austerely forbidding public persona."--Provided by publisher
