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

29 editions published between 2001 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 1,149 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 )

44 editions published between 1990 and 2010 in 3 languages and held by 849 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

Churchill and war by Geoffrey Best( Book )

12 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Croatian and held by 510 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Winston Churchill saved Britain and Europe by his incomparable leadership in the Second World War. His involvement in war, however, stretched over a far longer period and was one of the main themes of his long life. Cavalryman at Omdurman, infantry colonel in the Trenches, First Lord of the Admiralty, as well as wartime Prime Minister, he wrote copiously about war as war correspondent, journalist and historian. Personally brave, he was both excited and repelled by war, and was a powerful strategic thinker. Geoffrey Best shows the importance of war in Churchill's career as a whole, from his early days as a hussar in India to his attempts to control the threat of the nuclear bomb

The Oxford movement : twelve years, 1833-1845 by R. W Church( Book )

9 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

First published in 1891, The Oxford Movement consists of a series of essays by R.W. Church, dean (1871-90) of St Paul's Cathedral, which together provide a largely chronological account of the development of the Oxford Movement from Keble's famous Assize Sermon in 1833 to the "catastrophe" of Newman's secession from the Church of England in 1845. It is a tribute to Church's scholarship, style and insight that over a century later his book remains the best introduction, for student and general reader alike, to the most famous religious movement of nineteenth-century England. Church is without rival for his lucid treatment of complex issues and events, and he offers sympathetic insights into the minds of the leading protagonists. Edited by Dr Arthur Burns of King's College, London, this is the first annotated edition; in addition to hundreds of hyperlinked explanatory notes, it contains an introduction, summary, biographical note and bibliography
