9780002570343: Man of the Century: Winston Churchill and His Legend Since 1945

A biographical study of Winston Churchill's post-war fame and reputation, what he was thought to stand for and how that reputation was constructed. The book examines how Churchill's personality, attitudes, and vision of himself have affected our own political perception of ourselves as a nation, and argues that his romantic, imperial notion of Britain has contributed directly to many of the political debates of recent years - particularly our attitudes in Europe.

Book Description:

Man of the Century is the often surprising story of how Winston Churchill, in the last years of his life, carefully crafted his reputation for posterity, revealing him to be perhaps the twentieth century's first, and most gifted, "spin doctor." Ramsden draws on fresh material and extensive research on three continents to argue that the statesman's force of personality and romantic, imperial notion of Britain has contributed directly to many of the political debates of the last decades―including American involvement in Vietnam and the role of the Anglo-American alliance in promoting and protecting a certain vision of world order.

About the Author:

John Ramsden is the author of three of the volumes in Longman's vast, specialised, multi-volume history of the Conservative Party. He is head of the history department at Queen Mary and Westfield College, London.Until 1997 he was the Visiting Robertson Professor of British History at the University of Missouri.
