"In this landmark biography of Winston Churchill based on extensive new material, the true genius of the man, statesman and leader can finally be fully seen and understood--by the bestselling, award-winning author of Napoleon and The Storm of War. When we seek an example of great leaders with unalloyed courage, the person who comes to mind is Winston Churchill: the iconic, visionary war leader immune from the consensus of the day, who stood firmly for his beliefs when everyone doubted him. But how did young Winston become Churchill? What gave him the strength to take on the superior force of Nazi Germany when bombs rained on London and so many others had caved? In Churchill, Andrew Roberts gives readers the full and definitive Winston Churchill, from birth to lasting legacy, as personally revealing as it is compulsively readable. Roberts gained exclusive access to extensive new material: transcripts of War Cabinet meetings, diaries, letters and unpublished memoirs from Churchill's contemporaries. The Royal Family permitted Roberts--in a first for a Churchill biographer--to read the detailed notes taken by King George VI in his diary after his weekly meetings with Churchill during World War II. This treasure trove of access allows Roberts to understand the man in revelatory new ways, and to identify the hidden forces fueling Churchill's legendary drive"--

Winston Churchill S Imagination

Although Churchill is a 1953 Nobel laureate in literature, his famous speeches have overshadowed his other writing. Winston Churchill's Imagination concentrates on key works in modes other than political rhetoric to show how Churchill engages readers with those words and ideas that are hallmarks of his imagination. Chapters take up his literary relationship with Lawrence of Arabia; Churchill's intense but little-known involvement with cinema in an essay on Charlie Chaplin and as a script writer and consultant in the 1930s for Alexander Korda's film studio; Churchill's evocation of paintings as templates for narrative in his first history and in his only novel; his imaginative engagement with science and science fiction; the depiction of time, duration, and alternative history in his biography of Marlborough; and Churchill's last testament in the realm of imagination, "The Dream." This is a story that he reserved for posthumous publication, in which a seventy-two-year-old Winston discusses the twentieth century with the ghost of his father, Lord Randolph Churchill, who died in 1895. Winston Churchill's Imagination is aimed at scholars of literature and history, and general readers interested in Churchill. Paul K. Alkon is Leo S. Bing Professor of English and American Literature at the University of Southern California, Los Angeles.

Kenneth W. Thompson was director emeritus of the White Burkett Miller Center of Public Affairs and J. Wilson Newman Professor Emeritus of government and foreign affairs at the University of Virginia. He was the author of many books on international relations, including Fathers of International Thought: The Legacy of Political Theory." data-formswitch="ShowAlways" data-fwclientid="30776a15-ecfd-46d9-a98b-ca5902afcc1a" data-fwfieldtype="CopyText" data-fwsubid="70017079" data-hasoriginalvalue="1" data-ignoredatalock="0" data-localstate="Default" data-preservehtmlbullets="0" data-readonly="0" data-takefocus="False" id="EditionBiography" name="EditionBiography" spellcheck="false" contenteditable="false"> Winston Churchill’s place in modern history is assured. As a statesman and world leader, he towers above his contemporaries. As a historian, his reputation is equally secure. But little attention has been given to Churchill’s stature as a political theorist, to the ideas and principles that he developed, tested, and followed throughout his long career as a soldier, military correspondent, politician, world leader, and author. Winston Churchill’s World View is a study of the underlying principles and goals that shaped the actions of one of the most influential men of our time. Kenneth Thompson traces the genesis and elaboration of Churchill’s views from his youth at the fringes of the British Empire through his rise as a politician, his years of determined struggle and final triumph as the prime minister of England in its darkest hour, and the time of reflection that followed his departure from his active political life. Thompson works closely with Churchill’s writing to identify and assess his concepts of power, authority, politics, and diplomacy, as well as his thoughts on international organization and law, collective security, and practical morality. Churchill firmed believed that an effective foreign policy must be based on a set of well-defined but flexible organizing principles. “Those who are possessed of a definite body of doctrine and of deeply rooted convictions,” he wrote in the first volume of his history of World War II, “will be in a much better position to deal with the shifts and surprises of daily affairs.” It was the lack of such a set of principle, Churchill contended, that led the Allies into the conflagration of World War II and that in the postwar era threatened to bring about an even more destructive conflict between the West and the Soviet Union. Churchill’s own plan to avert that peril, Thompson shows, was based on the twin pillars of diplomacy and strength. He insisted that peace must be negotiated. But only could a lasting settlement be concluded, a settlement that was not based on weakness and fear. Churchill’s political philosophy was rooted in his own experience and in an awareness of the course of man’s history. It is a perspective at odds with prevailing viewpoints—based not in history, but in a shifting tide of facts and statistics—and with the current perception of a world with problems too complex and numerous to be solved through the simple application of doctrine and conviction. But this complex age, Thompson argues, is one sorely in need of the lessons of history and the wisdom of experienced statesmen. With this study, Thompson demonstrates the relevance of Winston Churchill’s views to the present world situation, and shows the current need for a steady, principled, pragmatic approach to maintaining world peace.

Early in 1937, the enterprising owner of an independent press service called Cooperation made Winston Churchill an irresistible offer.

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.
