An eye-opening narrative which makes for exciting but at times uncomfortable reading as one reflects on possible lessons for the present. --Antonia Fraser, author of Mary Queen of Scots An astonishingly accomplished debut. Bouverie writes with a wonderful clarity and we will no doubt hear a lot more of his voice in the future. --Antony Beevor, author of Stalingrad Appeasement is the stunning debut of a major new narrative historian. Tim Bouverie makes us look again at the familiar story of the doomed attempt to appease Hitler in the 1930s. A riveting and depressing story which has resonance today as the democracies again face dictatorships. --Margaret Macmillan, author of Paris 1919 This is the debut of an unusually talented writer, one of the most promising young historians to enter our field for years. --Max Hastings, author of Inferno Drawing on an impressive and interesting range of sources and characters, Tim Bouverie has written a fascinating and scholarly portrait of a decade when credulity, self-interest and poor judgement prevailed tragically and inexorably over morality and good sense: this is the reporting of history at its best. --Caroline Moorehead, author of A Train in Winter A brilliant and sparkling debut by an outstanding young historian. Tim Bouverie has written an account of the build-up to the Second World War that reads like a thriller. I couldn't put it down. --Peter Frankopan, author of The Silk Roads Tim Bouverie tells the story of appeasement with skill, verve, and panache, using contemporary accounts to great effect in exploring the mentalities that lay behind the political decisions. --Ian Kershaw, author of Hitler
