Summary:
"This book fully explores the role that Zionism played in the political thought of Winston Churchill. Michael Makovsky traces the intellectual and diplomatic development of Churchill's positions from early in his career up through his final years as prime minister in the 1950s. Makovsky's wide-ranging and deeply researched account takes full consideration of Churchill's strategic and imperial interests, the demands of politics and statecraft, the moral impact of the Holocaust, his sentimental attachments, and his commitment to the ideals of Western Civilization."--Jacket.
