What were the political machinations that kept Neville Chamberlain in office during the 1930s and deliberately kept Winston Churchill out? Winston Churchill and Neville Chamberlain were two giants of the political stage who were the sons of men who had decisively shaped the politics of the previous era. BURYING CAESAR charts the course plotted by both Churchill and Chamberlain in their ambition to become the leader of the Tory Party, a role which had eluded both their fathers.
'The contest between Churchill and Chamberlain for the leadership of their party and the prize of the premiership is a fascinating political story. It is well told, admirably written and deeply researched' - New Statesman
'Stewart writes with tremendous brio and panache ... We shall be lucky to see a better balanced or more exciting study of modern British politics' - Sunday Times
'Combining years of patient scholarship with imaginative insight and literary flair, BURYING CAESAR is a most impressive debut' - TLS
