Winston Churchill, Architect of Peace: A Study of Statesmanship and the Cold War

Synopsis

This study establishes a "Churchillian perspective" of politics that explains Winston Churchill's policies and actions during and following World War II. Using a new approach, Lambakis describes the principles informing Churchill's statesmanship and his basic strategies in dealing with the Soviet Union when the Cold War developed. It fills a gap in scholarship regarding the final years of Churchill's career. This study departs from mainstream views on Churchill and most postwar history and should thus be of real interest to political scientists, Churchill scholars, diplomatic historians, and students in European studies.
