Draft Book

If you thought that appeasement in the 1930s was about well intentioned but gullible politicians who were deceived by Hitler, that Churchill was always opposed to fascism and never supported appeasement, that Britain today never colludes with murderous dictators, then prepared to be shocked.

You can find here extracts from the first draft copy of my book – “Dancing with Dictators – Exposing the Propaganda Behind Appeasement.”  The project has already taken many months of research during which I have read at least thirty thousand articles from regional and national British newspapers for the first part of the book which looks at the British elite and media propaganda in support of appeasement during the 1930s.  I’m currently researching media justifications for the ongoing British support of repressive regimes today and I hope to start publishing further extracts from this research during 2018.

You are welcome to contact me with any comments. criticism, questions or suggestions.
