Rothwell (history, U. of Edinburgh) draws on newly available information to reassess the view of Eden (1897-1977), the British Prime Minister usually blamed for the Suez Crisis. He explores Eden's appeasement of fascist leaders, his attitudes towards the Soviet Union and the US, his tense 20-year relationship with Churchill, his actions as Foreign Secretary during WWII, the domestic and foreign aspects of his brief premiership, and the circumstances of his resignation. Distributed in the US by St. Martin's Press. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
