Churchill's Trial

Larry Arnn

$25.99

Paperback
:

"A masterpiece of political philosophy and practical statesmanship…the one book on Winston Churchill that every undergraduate, every graduate student, every professional historian, and every member of the literate general public should read....Beautifully written." --Lewis E. Lehrman, cofounder of the Lincoln and Soldiers Institute at Gettysburg College and distinguished director of the Abraham Lincoln Association

No statesman shaped the twentieth century more than Winston Churchill. To know Churchill is to understand the combinations of boldness and caution, assertiveness and humility, that define statesmanship at its best. With fresh perspective and insights based on decades of studying and teaching Churchill, Larry P. Arnn explores the greatest challenges faced by Churchill, both in war and in peacetime, in the context of Churchill's abiding devotion to constitutionalism.

"Shows that Churchill, often perceived as inconsistent and opportunist, was in fact philosophically rigorous and consistent at levels...higher and deeper than his detractors are capable of imagining." --Mark Helprin, New York Times bestselling author of Winter's Tale and In Sunlight and in Shadow

"Lively…artfully reminds us that Churchill was not just the greatest statesman and war leader of the twentieth century, but also a pragmatic and circumspect thinker whose wisdom resonates on every issue of our times." --Victor Davis Hanson, senior fellow, The Hoover Institution, Stanford University

"Intelligent, thought-provoking, and well-written"-Andrew Roberts, The Claremont Review of Books
