Churchill : a study in greatness by Geoffrey Best( Book )

Winston Churchill's inspiring leadership in the Second World War once put him above criticism. In recent years his record has come under attack. In this volume, the author makes sense of this extraordinary man and his long, controversial, colorful, contradictory and heroic career. What was at the heart of him? Was he a romantic or a realist? How central was his part in Britain's survival and in the defeat of Hitler? Best brings out both his strengths and his weaknesses, looking past the many received versions of Churchill in a biography that balances the private and the public man and offers a fresh insight into his character

War and law since 1945 by Geoffrey Best( Book )

42 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 797 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Civilization has long sought to limit the violence and ugliness of war. This book traces the recent history of these efforts, and explores important contemporary issues in the area. Geoffrey Best shows how the Second World War prompted reconstruction of international law, and charts the fortunes of its relations with war since then. He critically surveys the whole range of contemporary armed conflicts - high-tech international wars, wars of national liberation, revolutionary risings, and civil wars. Far more than a litany of the trouble-spots and tragedies of the second half of the twentieth century, this book offers an original and thought-provoking approach to contemporary history, law, politics, and ethics, and will be essential reading for anyone concerned with war
