Roy Jenkins:
Churchill: A Biography - Paperback

2002, ISBN: 0330488058

[SR: 16093], Taschenbuch, [EAN: 9780330488051], MacMillan, MacMillan, Book, [PU: MacMillan], 2002-06-26, MacMillan, Churchill: a Biography, Winston Churchill was querulous, childish, self-indulgent, and difficult, writes English historian Roy Jenkins. But he was also brilliant, tenacious, and capable--in short, "the greatest human being ever to occupy 10 Downing Street." Jenkins's book stands as the best single-volume biography of Churchill in recent years. Marked by the author's wide experience writing on British leaders such as Balfour and Gladstone and his tenure as a member of Parliament, his book adds much to the vast library of works on Churchill. While acknowledging his subject's prickly nature, Jenkins credits Churchill for, among other things, recognizing far earlier than his peers the dangers of Hitler's regime. He praises Churchill for his leadership during the war years, especially at the outset, when England stood alone and in imminent danger of defeat. He also examines Churchill's struggle to forge political consensus to meet that desperate crisis, and he sheds new light on Churchill's postwar decline. --Gregory McNamee, 56859011, Politiker, 56858011, Politiker & Persönlichkeiten, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 56870011, Präsidenten & Staatsoberhäupter, 56858011, Politiker & Persönlichkeiten, 56797011, Biografien & Erinnerungen, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 65458011, Europa, 65460011, Albanien, 65399011, Altertum, 65463011, Belgien, 65464011, Bosnien-Herzegowina, 65465011, Bulgarien, 65490011, Deutschland, 65469011, Dänemark, 65471011, England, 65481011, Estland, 65482011, Finnland, 65484011, Frankreich, 65496011, Griechenland, 65500011, Irland, 65505011, Italien, 65466011, Kroatien, 65509011, Lettland, 65512011, Luxemburg, 65514011, Malta, 65535011, Mitteleuropa, 65483011, Nachfolgestaaten der Sowjetunion & Sibirien, 65517011, Niederlande, 65518011, Norwegen, 65470011, Osten, 65519011, Polen, 65521011, Rumänien, 65523011, Schottland, 65528011, Schweden, 65529011, Schweiz, 65534011, Skandinavien, 65526011, Slowenien, 65527011, Spanien, 65459011, Ukraine, 65530011, Vatikan, 65531011, Wales, 65533011, Westen, 65462011, Österreich, 65140011, Geschichte, 54071011, Genres, 52044011, Fremdsprachige Bücher, 65274011, 2.

Churchill: A Biography - Paperback

2002, ISBN: 0330488058

[SR: 9969], Paperback, [EAN: 9780330488051], Pan, Pan, Book, [PU: Pan], 2002-06-26, Pan, Churchill: a Biography, Book buyers will never tire of reading about Winston Churchill, for "the greatest adventurer of modern political history" (RA Butler's verdict) led a life of action-packed drama and global significance. Roy Jenkins' Churchill is the latest biography of this great Briton, following closely in the tailwind of Geoffrey Best's Churchill: A Study in Greatness. Where Best restores altitude to Churchill's dipping reputation, seeing off academic critics of the last decade or so, Jenkins provides a jumbo-size old-fashioned biography, lauding his subject's achievements, sympathising with his quirks, and stepping lightly over his well-known mistakes. As he did in his earlier biographies of Dilke, Asquith and Gladstone, Jenkins sticks closely to the published record, utilising in particular the definitive researches of Martin Gilbert, but he brings the authority and the inside knowledge of British politics to his book, slipping in his own memories of Churchill, and his own comparable experience sat the Cabinet table. It is all here, from the Boer Wars to the nuclear bomb, from the hustings in Oldham to the diplomacy of Yalta, with due coverage of the big moments--at the Board of Trade and at the Admiralty in Asquith's peacetime and wartime cabinets, taking on the appeasers in the 1930s and Hitler in the 1940s. All the books are here, and all the political relationships tetchy and touchy alike, from Lloyd George to Baldwin, Smuts to Stalin, and of course, the British people. Like its subject the book is bulky and at times indulgent, but impossible not to enjoy.--Miles Taylor, 758988, 1901 Onwards, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 759000, 1901 Onwards, 268022, Britain, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758914, Military, 268022, Britain, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758964, United States, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758944, Europe, 758932, Countries & Regions, 268021, Historical, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 268043, Britain, 268041, Political, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 759044, United States, 268041, Political, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 758920, World War II, 758862, War & Espionage, 67, Biography, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 12447586031, 20th Century, 271343, Great Britain, 271480, Europe, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books, 10960931, Biographies & Memoirs, 10959961, World War II 1939-1945, 271411, Military History, 65, History, 1025612, Subjects, 266239, Books

From the admiralty to the miner´s strike, from the Battle of Britain to the Nobel Prize, Churchill oversaw some of the most important events the World has ever seen. Roy Jenkins faithfully presents these events, while also managing to convey the contradictions and quirks in Churchill´s character. In depth analysis and brilliant historical research make this a magnificent one-volume biography of an extraordinary life. In some ways a companion piece to his excellent biography of Gladstone, Churchill is packed with insights that only a fellow politician could convey. ´´There is no doubt that he has surpassed himself. This is the biography of the year.´´ Robert McCrum, Observer ´´This is a first class, well-sustained work of history and a masterpiece of biography ´´ Andrew Roberts, Sunday Telegraph ´´Lord Jenkins of Hillhead is an outstanding biographer...it has the narrative power, sweep and sparkle of the author in his prime. ´´ John Grigg, Times From the admiralty to the miners´ strike, from the battle of Britain to the Nobel Prize, Churchill oversaw some of the most important events the world has ever seen. Roy Jenkins faithfully presents these events, while also managing to convey the contradictions and quirks in Churchill´s character.
