Summary, etc.: "In the 1930s, Winston Churchill and Neville Chamberlain were the two giants of the English political stage, the sons of men who had decisively shaped the politics of the previous era. Burying Caesar charts the complicated course plotted by Churchill and Chamberlain in their ambition to win the greatest prize in British politics - the office of prime minister that had eluded both their fathers. The struggle was carried out against the darkening storm coming out of Nazi Germany." "Burying Caesar is the result of seven years of rigorous archival research and fresh analysis from a young historian of the 1930s - one of the century's most complex and turbulent decades. It is a gripping account of the mechanisms and motivations that underpin politics in Britain, forces as powerful today - with implications on both sides of the Atlantic - as they were more than sixty years ago."-- Jacket.
