The Life of Neville Chamberlain, by Keith Feiling
A link to "The Life of Neville Chamberlain, by Keith Feiling" has been emailed to your friends.
KEITH FEILING's Neville Chamberlain forcibly reminds one of Carlyle's observation that a well written life is as rare as a well spent one.
Clinton Goveas :: Wikipedia Reference (8513 words)
Chamberlain was, to an extent, unfortunate in his biography; when his widow commissioned Keith Feiling to write an official life in the 1940s, the government papers were not available for consultation.
As a result, Feiling was unable to tackle criticisms by pointing to the government records in a way that later biographers could.
Feiling filled the gap with extensive use of Chamberlain's private papers and produced a book that many consider to be the best account of Chamberlain's life, but which was unable to overcome the negative image of him at the time.
