Winston S. Churchill, 1874-1965: A Comprehensive Historiography and Annotated Bibliography

Synopsis

Perhaps the most influential figure in 20th century British, imperial, and world history, Winston S. Churchill has been the subject of numerous studies, biographies, and controversies, but not of a recent comprehensive bibliography. The most extensive and up-to-date bibliographic work on Churchill, this book provides a full historiographical survey and over 3,000 annotated entries on all of the important writings by and about Churchill. Reflecting Churchill's versatility, dynamism, and influence, the book emphasizes his background and context, covering, for instance, works on fifteen major controversies associated with Churchill, some thirty biographies ranging from those that glorify to solid, scholarly studies, to extreme revisionist attacks. The final historiographical chapter points to subjects that would benefit from further research. The book will provide a valuable resource for students, scholars, and other researchers interested in Churchill and his era.

Churchill, an annotated bibliography section with 3099 individual entries, a chronology, and an index further subdivided into author and subject sections. Every one of the 3099 annotated bibliographical entries will be described, analyzed, evaluated, assessed, and integrated into the overall literature. The "literature" means published books and monographs, general surveys, official histories, government publications, memoirs, diaries, dissertations, bibliographies, pertinent articles in scholarly journals and periodicals, collections of unpublished papers and letters, atlases, various manuscripts, anthologies, published interviews, all in English and Western languages. Films and documentaries, other media, works of fiction, cartoons, recordings, important paintings of Churchill and by Churchill, sculptures, busts, Churchilliana, memorabilia, medals, stamps, and coins also are included.

The historiographical narrative covers historical and biographical events associated with the life and times of Winston S. Churchill.
