Abstract:

In this significant reassessment of Anthony Eden, Earl of Avon, Victor Rothwell makes use of newly available information to move beyond the evaluations of the two major biographies published since Eden's death in 1977. Focusing particularly on foreign policy, Rothwell reexamines the central episodes in Eden's career to provide a new picture of Eden the statesman. Eden's precise views on the appeasement of the fascist dictators and his policy towards the Soviet Union in the 1930s; the tangled circumstances of his resignations in 1938 and 1957; his twenty-year long, tension-ridden relationship with Churchill; his actions as Foreign Secretary during the foreign policy crisis from 1940 to 1945 and from 1951 to 1955; and the domestic as well as foreign policy aspects of his brief premiership; all receive important new interpretations.

Eden's name became inextricably linked to Suez, and Rothwell provides an important reassessment of Eden's role in this pivotal crisis. He gives overdue attention to the wider Middle East situation, and explains Eden's failure to manage the Anglo-American relationship in the crisis in terms of his life-long lack of warmth for the United States, which verged at times on anti-Americanism. Eden remains a central figure in twentieth century international politics, and all those interested in international history as well students of international relations, will find Rothwell's new political biography compelling reading.
