For the last year I’ve been working on a book looking at British media justifications for appeasement. Extracts from a draft copy of the first part of the book have now been published at imperialism.blog.
If you thought that the appeasement of Nazi Germany was about well intentioned but gullible politicians who were deceived by Hitler, that Churchill was always opposed to Nazism and never supported appeasement, that Britain today never supports murderous dictators, then prepared to be shocked.
However I’m now starting to research British support for repressive regimes today – especially those in the Middle East region including Bahrain, Egypt and Saudi Arabia. If you have any suggestions or might be able to contribute – based on your own personal experience – please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will shortly write a little more here to specify more precisely what sort of contributions I’m hoping for.
