Anthony Eden : a life and reputation by David Dutton( Book )

11 editions published between 1996 and 1997 in English and held by 592 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on a mass of unpublished archival material, much of it from Anthony Eden's own papers, David Dutton seeks to reassess the career of a man who experienced the extremes of political fortune. For much of his life the golden boy of British politics with a popular appeal that transcended party boundaries, Eden left public life with his reputation for sound judgement and probity sadly tarnished. The Suez crisis of 1956, which did such lasting damage to Eden's historical reputation, is closely examined but is not allowed to compromise a proper assessment of a man who was at the heart of British political life for more than two decades. Eden's role in some of the key episodes in modern history is searchingly probed: his participation in the appeasement of Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy until 1938, when he resigned from Chamberlain's government; his direction in conjunction with Churchill of Britain's wartime diplomacy; his involvement as a key player in the Cold War, in European integration and in postwar domestic policy; and his instigation of the events that culminated in the Suez debacle and his own downfall. Anthony Eden was not an easy man to know, but David Dutton's interpretation of his career transcends the partisanship of writings by his contemporaries or near-contemporaries. He emerges neither as the 'golden boy' of myth nor as a man largely bereft of substance but as a diplomat of high standing, if a dangerously thin-skinned and sometimes inept politician
British politics since 1945 : the rise and fall of consensus by David Dutton( Book )

David Dutton examines the development of postwar politics and the ways in which it has been interpreted by historians, political scientists and politicians alike. He argues that after 1970 the consensus looked instantly fragile, and shows how it gave way to a new style of politics in Britain. He also examines how the 1990s saw an emergence of a new consensus under John Major, rising out of the ashes of the old

A history of the Liberal Party in the twentieth century by David Dutton( Book )

9 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 258 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Most existing accounts of the British Liberal Party are written within the context of the party's decline. The passage of the Twentieth century, however, enables a fresh view to be taken, which recognizes that the party has now been strengthening its position for more than forty years and has once again become a major player in British politics. This survey of British Liberalism from the era of Campbell-Bannerman to that of Charles Kennedy reviews existing literature while offering its own distinctive perspective
