Abstract:

Early in 1937, the enterprising owner of an independent press service called Cooperation made Winston Churchill an irresistible offer. He would place Churchill's articles on current world events in major newspapers across Europe - and for significantly more money than Churchill was making through his present agent. So began a profitable business relationship that grew over time into an enduring personal friendship. This book chronicles that relationship through the entire body of correspondence between Winston Churchill and Emery Reves. It preserves a compelling record of how each man used the other's talents to forward a cause that passionately engaged them both - the spread of democratic ideals in a post-totalitarian world.
