The World That Made Him and the World He MadeBook - 2010
A charmer and a bully, Winston Churchill was driven by a belief that the English were a superior race whose goals went beyond individual interests to offer an enduring good to the entire world. But there is also the Churchill who frequently inveighed against human rights, nationalism, and constitutional progress--the imperialist who could celebrate racism and believed India was unsuited to democracy. Toye demonstrates how the statesman evolved and challenges the reader to understand Churchill's need to reconcile the demands of conscience with those of political conformity.--From publisher's description.
