In the Midst of Events: The Foreign Office Diaries and Papers of Kenneth Younger, February 1950-October 1951

Front Cover
Psychology Press, 2005 - History - 123 pages
"Kenneth Younger was the second-ranking minister in the Foreign Office under Ernest Bevin and Herbert Morrison from February 1950 until the Labour government's defeat in the general election of October 1951. His diaries and papers, published here for the first time, offer a unique insight into British and world politics at a time when Britain could still claim to be a world power. Younger's incisive analysis and vivid descriptions of events and personalities make this volume an essential primary source for anyone interested in the period, while his shrewd assessments of Britain's European policy and the 'special relationship' with the United States are as relevant today as they were more than half a century ago."--BOOK JACKET.
