"The Kennedy journals provide new and interesting insight into the relationship between The Times, the government and the Foreign Office during the 'age of appeasement'. This selection from the journals focuses on the period 1932-1939, and recounts his discussions with Ramsay MacDonald, Arthur Henderson, John Simon, Anthony Eden and other leading British politicians, his meetings with Bruning, Ribbentrop, Dollfuss and other leading European politicians and diplomats. The inner workings of The Times is revealed through his relationships with Geoffrey Dawson and Robin Barrington-Ward, while the relationship between the newspaper and the Foreign Office is recounted in his renderings of Robert Vansittart, Reginald Leeper, Arthur Willert and others. The journals are a remarkable record of his attempts to make sense of Hitler and Nazism, Mussolini and Fascism, and to determine how Britain ought to respond to the challenges they posed. Students of journalism and politics will discover in vivid detail how a journalist attempts simultaneously to understand and to shape 'public opinion' and fresh information concerning the unique role played by The Times in influencing government policies."--BOOK JACKET
