Churchill's grand alliance : the Anglo-American special relationship, 1940-57 by John Charmley( Book )

31 editions published between 1995 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 891 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Charmley turns to the Anglo-American "special relationship" that was the cornerstone of Churchill's foreign policy, ruthlessly stripping away the myth to reveal the unsentimental reality of the Churchill years and beyond, from 1940 to 1957. With vivid assessments of Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Churchill, and Eden, John Charmley brilliantly continues his thought-provoking - and sometimes infuriating - ways
Chamberlain and the lost peace by John Charmley( Book )

20 editions published between 1989 and 2009 in English and held by 690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"As Neville Chamberlain lay dying in October 1940 almost the last entry in his diary records him reading press reports of his resignation: 'Not one shows the slightest sign of sympathy for the man or even any comprehension that there may be a human tragedy somewhere in the background.' This book tries to put that right. Most studies of the period assume that the Second World War was, in some ways, a triumph for Britain; this book dissents from that verdict."--Jacket
A history of conservative politics, 1900-1996 by John Charmley( Book )

26 editions published between 1996 and 2013 in English and held by 561 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A controversial book, describing the role of the Conservative party and attempting to account for its success. With their fundamental distrust of change, how is it that the Conservatives have so successfully coped with it? John Charmley has written an entertaining but fair account of one of the principal forces in modern British history from the age of Lord Salisbury to that of John Major. It is illuminated throughout by a concentration upon the men (and the woman) who charted the party through a century of warfare and welfare

Bogen giver en anderledes fortolkning af Storbritaniens rolle i verden i tiden op til 1. Verdenskrig. Forfatteren argumenterer for, at den britiske politik i global sammenhæng var langt mere spidsfindig og elastisk, end man har troet i almindelighed, og at dette forhold bør give England af i dag grund til at udnytte de indvundne erfaringer ...

A history of conservative politics since 1830 by John Charmley( Book )

10 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 247 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

John Charmley has written an entertaining but fair account of one of the principal forces in modern British political history, illuminated throughout by a concentration upon the men, and the woman, who charted the party through a century of warfare and welfare. The second edition of this successful text is thoroughly updated to take into account the latest scholarship, and now has an earlier starting date to make sense of the importance of the Home Rule issue in defining late nineteenth-century Toryism. Charmley takes the story through the recent "wilderness years" following the 1997 election fiasco. - Publisher

6 editions published in 2005 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Princess Dorothea Lieven was wife to the Russian ambassador in London from 1812 to 1840. As a woman, she was debarred from having any formal power in the world of European diplomacy. But as a Baltic Russian, brought up under the harsh regime of Catherine the Great, Dorothea Lieven was not meant to be the power behind any man: it was centre stage she craved
Churchill : das Ende einer Legende by John Charmley( Book )

4 editions published between 1995 and 1997 in German and held by 58 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der Untergang des Britischen Empires : Roosevelt - Churchill und Amerikas Weg zur Weltmacht by John Charmley( Book )

1 edition published in 2005 in German and held by 27 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Amerika stieg zur Supermacht auf, indem es das weltumspannende britische Empire ebenso rasch wie friedlich beerbte. Die Voraussetzungen dieses ebenso erstaunlichen wie wenig beachteten historischen Vorgangs liegen im Zweiten Weltkrieg, genauer: sind in der Politik Roosevelts und Churchills sowie ihrer Nachfolger zu finden. Die anglo-amerikanischen Beziehungen der ersten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts sind die Beziehungen zweier Weltmächte: die des kommenden amerikanischen und die des niedergehenden britischen Imperiums. Obwohl eine solche Konstellation in der Geschichte häufig zu Auseinandersetzungen und Kriegen geführt hat, haben beide Länder in zwei Weltkriegen Seite an Seite gekämpft. Diese "besondere Beziehung" (special relationship) zwischen dem britischen Empire und den USA bildete das zentrale Element der Politik Churchills. Charmley räumt mit dem Mythos auf, Churchill wäre der "letzte Bewahrer des Empire" gewesen und schildert detailliert die Zeit des endgültigen Niedergangs Britanniens bis 1957. Er zeigt, wie unsentimental sich die Amerikaner auch im Krieg alles bezahlen liessen, wie sie Englands Empire Stück für Stück "in Zahlung" nahmen. Merkte Churchill nicht, wie das Empire immer schwächer und abhängiger von den USA wurde? Überhörte er die anti-imperialen Töne der Politik Roosevelts? Charmleys Detailkenntnis über diesen Ausverkauf ist verblüffend. Und die Geschichte des fast geräuschlosen Verfalls des britischen Weltreichs zugunsten der amerikanischen Supermacht ist wohl eines der erstaunlichsten Lehrstücke der Weltgeschichte
