Description
Information
An original and revelatory portrait of Churchill post Second World War which examines the development of his fame and his posthumous reputation, from one of Britain's leading political writers.

This is a fresh, original biographical study of Churchill's post-war fame and reputation, what he was thought to stand for and how that reputation was constructed.

The book contains a lot of new and revelatory material on how his personality, attitudes, and vision of himself have affected the British people's political perception as a nation, and argues that Churchill's romantic, imperial notion of Britain has contributed directly to many of the political debates of recent years - in particular attitudes in Europe.

This is not a dry political analysis but an important biographical study of the man who found himself described as the prized possession of the whole world, and of the whole Churchill phenomenon, from one of our most interesting and readable historians.
