| ||Thoughts and Adventures: Churchill reflects on Spies, Cartoons, Flying, and the Future|
More than any other book by Winston Churchill, the wide-ranging Thoughts and Adventures allows the contemporary reader to grasp the extraordinary variety and depth of Churchill's mature thoughts on the questions, both grave and gay, facing modern man with subjects as diverse as spies, cartoons, submarines, elections, flying, and the future.
| ||Churchill's "Iron Curtain" Speech Fifty Years Later|
Churchill delivered his most famous speech, "The Sinews of Peace," which became best known by the phrase he used to describe the cold-war division of Europe, the "iron curtain." The book brings together essays that reflect on the past fifty years, recognizing Churchill's speech as a carefully conceived herald of the cold war for the Western democracies. These powerful essays offer a fresh appreciation of the speech's political, historical, diplomatic, and rhetorical significance.
| ||Churchill as Peacemaker|
Winston Churchill had an acute appreciation of what belongs to war and what belongs to peace. We tend to remember his resistance to Nazi tyranny during World War II and his actions as a man of war. In this book, scholars from the United States, Great Britain, and South Africa examine his other actions and comment, those that reflect the primary focus of Churchill's long career; his attempts to keep and restore peace throughout the world, from Queen Victoria's little wars to the Cold War.
| ||Great Contemporaries: Churchill Reflects on FDR, Hitler, Kipling, Chaplin, Balfour, and Other Giants of His Age|
Written in the decade before Churchill became prime minister, the essays in Great Contemporaries focus on the challenges of statecraft at a time when the democratic revolution was topping older regimes based on tradition and aristocratic privilege. Churchill's keen observations take on new importance in our own age of rolling political change.
