Diana Mosley by Jan Dalley ( Book )
10 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 650 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Much has been written about and by the Mitford sisters, who variously dazzled and shocked their contemporaries in England and abroad. But until now there has been no biography of one of the most extraordinary of them, the beautiful and ambitious Diana."
The black hole : money, myth and empire by Jan Dalley ( Book )
12 editions published between 2006 and 2007 in English and held by 217 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This book is about a story that entered the national myth-bank, and lodged there with unusual tenacity. As so often with the historical episodes the British take to their hearts, it is a story of heroism in failure, turning a miserable defeat into a matter of national pride. The story was used for good and for ill. All tales of exceptional human bravery and resilience have an important place in our minds, and this one came with other attractive characteristics: the aura of money and battles, of exotic places and people, of youth and daring and living against the odds. There is probably no great harm if a little exaggeration creeps in to such narratives. However, the way in which this particular episode also resonated as a fear of strangeness, and came to epitomize through its very name the savagery of other peoples, is much less savoury."--BOOK JACKET

Prise dans un tourbillon de mondanités où elle côtoie le fameux groupe de Bloomsbury, Diana Mitford rencontre, au printemps 1932, sir Oswald Mosley, politicien controversé, de quinze ans son aîné. Après un coup de foudre réciproque, chacun divorce et le nouveau couple Mosley se lance dans l'aventure du fascisme à l'anglaise. Tandis que sir Oswald crée ses propres "chemises noires", Diana devient l'intime de Hitler et de Gœbbels. L'Union fasciste britannique ne remportera jamais le triste succès de ses homologues du continent, et Mosley passera la Seconde Guerre mondiale en prison, comme sa femme. Au lendemain de la guerre, il tente, en vain, de fonder un nouveau parti. Diana, quand à elle, crée les Éditions Euphorion et lance le journal "The European". En 1980, Oswald meurt à l'âge de quatre-vingt-quatre ans ; Diana Mosley habite aujourd'hui en banlieue parisienne. Regard insolite sur la situation politique du Royaume-Uni pendant l'entre-deux-guerres, "Un fascisme anglais" met en lumière le rôle d'individus exceptionnels dans la genèse des grandes idéologies du XXe siècle. L'ère des masses a été aussi celle des personnalités. C'est ici toute une classe sociale, toute une génération qui a eu le choix de son destin. Traduit par : Laurent Bury
