Book News
In this two-part analysis derived from his doctoral dissertation, Crowson (history, Southampton U., UK) overviews the attitudes and perceptions of England's Conservative Party in response to WW II-era dictators before proceeding to chronicle how specific political circumstances led to the descent to war: from Abyssinia to Guernica, from Berchtesgaden to Poland. Includes appendices on members of sundry conservative groups (e.g. the Anglo-German Fellowship, supporters of Franco); and relations between foreign policy skeptics, their local parties, and voting records.
