Summits : Six Meetings that Shaped the Twentieth Century - hardcover

2007, ISBN: 9780713999174

ID: 196038376

Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston: 1986. Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition but dustjacket is worn. Takes up the story of "Churchill's War" at the moment where Finest Hour ended, the Japanese attack on Pearl Harnor on December 7, 1941, and carries it on to the triumph of V-E Day, May 8, 1945, the end of the war in Europe. Charts Churchill's tortuous course through the storms of Anglo-American and Anglo-Soviet suspicion and rivalry and between the clashing priorities and ambitions of other forces embattled against the common enemy: between General de Gaulle and his compatriots in France and the French Empire; between Tito and other Yugoslav leaders; between the Greek communists and monarchists; between the Polish Government exiled in London and the Soviet-controlled "Lublin" Poles. Includes an Index. ISBN: 0395378591., Houghton Mifflin Company, Boston: 1986, Allen Lane, Great Britain, 2007. First Edition. Hardcover. Near Fine/Near Fine Condition. 497 pages. Boards have no wear, rubbing or soiling. Edges of dust jacket have light bumping. Pages are clean and unmarked and in excellent condition except for previous owner's name in ink. 'It is not easy to see how matters could be worsened by a parley at the summit.' Winston Churchill coined the term in 1950 but the temptation of summitry has been around for centuries. In this incisive and readable book, David Reynolds takes us from the Babylonians right up to Blair and Bush. But the core of his account is six case studies of modern summitry - made possible by air travel, made necessary by weapons of mass destruction, and made into household news by the mass media. Using the records of the meetings, he explores how world leaders saw their opponents and how they played their own cards. He also reconstructs the enormous physical and emotional pressures upon them during encounters that could spell life or death for millions. The pioneer of modern summitry was Neville Chamberlain, whose dramatic flights to meet Hitler in September 1938 set patterns and taught lessons for all who followed. Some of the meetings involve a trio of leaders - Churchill, Roosevelt and Stalin at Yalta in 1945; Jimmy Carter, Menachem Begin and Anwar Sadat at Camp David in 1978 - but the heart of the story are three superpower duels that span the Cold War. Drawing on newly-opened archives, Reynolds examines the disastrous face-off between Kennedy and Khrushchev at Vienna in 1961, which helped spark the Cuban missile crisis and America's disastrous war in Vietnam. He looks at the Moscow summit between Nixon and Brezhnev in 1972, which began a promising era of detente but whose Machiavellian negotiation by Nixon and Kissinger also helped ensure detente's decline. By contrast, the Reagan-Gorbachev summit at Geneva in 1985 began a series of summits that brought the Cold War to a peaceful end. From it, Reynolds draws larger lessons for successful summitry. Written with verve and insight by a prize-winning international historian, "Summits" takes us into the minds of statesmen caught up in a bizarre mixture of competition and camaraderie as they stand, for a moment, on top of the world.
