Politicians, especially leaders like Churchill and Franklin Roosevelt, often seem to live at an Olympian-level, far above day-to-day concerns as they direct amazing matters of state. But the art of diplomacy on the largest of problems often depends to a surprising degree on little gestures and quiet, private connections. Cita Stelzer opens the door to a little-explored aspect of how Churchill used the easy act of dining to achieve political aims. Working to bring the U.S. into the battle versus Germany, forging an Allied tactic towards the invasion of Europe, and confronting the Soviet Union's post-War ambitions includes, it turns out, careful attention to both maps and menus; to military movements and seating charts. Ms. Stelzer demonstrates that Churchill used all the tools in his arsenal (and all the dinner selections at his disposal) to forge policy and to advance his art of persuasion. We know that Churchill was a amazing statesman; this portrait demonstrates, as well, that he was a man with whom it would have been delightful to share a meal.
Stelzer had a amazing idea -- and one that surely marketed well. But the execution of this book was disappointing. The chapters follow a banal formula: brief historical context; arduous travel plans; menu; caveat that Churchill was not a drunk; the Russian send caviar and we are told that Churchill was brilliant (with no examples of his brilliance).
This is an interesting (and important, at least to Churchill) angle on a part of Winston's life.He was the consummate politician, schemer, persuader, and host and he loved to have dinner where he could usually monopolize the conversation and fill the seats with interesting people who might contribute to the conversation and provide an interesting time for all as well as amazing meal and an abundance of drink and cigars or e book if full of menus, which are of amazing interest, as well as photographs of the haunts of Churchill in London and a lot of other photographs as he ate his method through three continents and three United States presidents, and, for the most part, enjoyed every bite and sip of is an entertaining book. You don't have to worry about grand strategies, beat off the revisionist historians hostile to WSC or contend with the a lot of who still admire this icon of the 20th century. It is a nice, quick, read.
Of any person that has lived in the 20th century no other person has been written and studied more than Winston Spencer Churchill. Between Churchill's wide oeuvre of writing as well as his speeches and quotations, one can quite easily see why a lot of people consider Churchill to be the man of the 20th century. Most of Winston's accomplishments occurred in the 20th century but in essence the method to prominence of Churchill represents that deep down inside he was a British Victorian who lived under the auspices of the chivalry of a gentleman of the 19th century. Cita Stelzer has brought forward a fresh method of looking at the life of this extraordinary man. The old saying of "You are what you eat" can be applied to the sighting in on the lifestyle and intentions of Churchill as done by Stelzer. The author not only goes into detail of Churchill's palate's likes and dislikes, he shows the art form of high entertainment with men and women of eclectic cultures. Stelzer shows to us how Churchill used the art and persuasion of fine dining in using his powers to exercise his politics and influence the globe for the better. The author shows to us that Churchill place much effort in not only the state dinners he attended, but also the influences he brought forward on everyday lunches and even picnics in the begin air with his military leaders in Europe and Africa. This introspective study of high life diners and lunches also studies the other social habits which coincided with these events. Stelzer goes into detail about Churchill's drinking habits as well as his well-known smoking of expensive Cuban cigars. The legends of Churchill's drinking habits are studied and clarified which will dispel the rumors of Churchill being a raging alcoholic. Along with Winston's drinking habits, Stelzer goes into Churchill's cigar smoking habits. Both Winston's drinking and smoking habits are dovetailed into his dining and entertaining method of life. His dining habits reflect not only politics but also his wit and humor to people who associated with him. In result what Stelzer shows to us was that Winston Churchill not only revels in the traditions and benefits of fine dining, but also how Churchill tended to use these happenings to have people being persuaded to see Churchill's political policies in a much enlightened perspective. Politics as seen from Churchill's points of view is shown to us also as satisfying the palate and filling the stomach. Stelzer brings forth to us most of the amazing dinners Churchill had attended and how his actions affected globe politics. This was a highly interesting book which looking at the life and Churchill from a various and unusual perspective. Fine dining shows to us was used to forming high politics.
I keep Churchill in enormously high esteem. The power of his personality and belief in the special hero of the Brits are, in huge part, the determiners of the arc of WWII. Add in his dedication to amazing drinks, cigars, and food, and this book is a unbelievable companion to the a lot of epic Churchill biographies (and of course his own voluminous writings). Here you'll search meal and drink as politics. Meal and drink as a method to knock down walls and build bridges. Really enjoyed the detailed nature of the menu research and less common anecdotes. A very interesting read. Highly recommend.
I enjoyed this book very much as I prefer biographies over most other forms of literature. Having read several other books about Churchill, I nevertheless learned a amazing a lot of fresh things about this awesome historical leader. As an amateur cook myself I particularly enjoyed reading about Churchill's meal and beverage preferences. The importance of his conduct of political diplomacy at the dinner table is created evident by the author. She documents the a lot of cases before and during the battle where Churchill's magnetic personality and rare conversational skills served him, and the British people admirably. The book is well-written and simple to read. My main reason for rating it with just four stars is that the topic matter of the book itself is fairly short - with the latest third of the book created up of short, but interesting mini-bios of different war-time associates of Churchill.
Despite the enormous amount of literature that has focussed on virtually every aspect of Winston Churchill's illustrious life and career, I believe that this is the only volume that concentrates on his dining habits, particularly as regards his "dinner diplomacy", his talent for using meals as a political instrument to achieve his t surprisingly, most of the table talk takes put during the Second Globe War. Ms. Stelzer describes the menus, the wines, the guests and the subjects of conversation in light, somewhat inelegant, prose that still manages to keep the reader's attention.Having squeezed nearly every drop out of the battle years, Ms. Stelzer finishes off the text with supplementary chapters on Churchill's unique preferences in food, spirits and, of course, cigars. Though somewhat less captivating, they will still provide the Churchill aficionado with a few more amazing all, this fresh work is a genuinely entertaining addition to the Churchill literature and is even more enjoyable accompanied by a huge cigar and double Cognac. My only true complaint is that the coarse paper and grainy photographs give the book a rather amateurish appearance.
Stelzer has written an entertaining book, but it is probably more entertaining for readers who already know a lot about Churchill the man and the history of the first half of the 20th century. What an appetite he had! My only quibble is that Stelzer tries too hard to defend Churchill from present-day Puritans. He was an alcoholic by today's standards. I do not see how you can deny that. A lot of people mutter quietly that today's Puritans have gone too far in their quest to hunt out sins and punish transgressors, but if you use today's standards, Churchill was a highly functioning alcoholic, probably Bipolar ill was also racist, eugenicist, nationalistic, imperialistic and Havana-cigaristic. Okay, so he wasn't perfect. He was the battle leader that the West required in 1940, and he was obviously a damned amazing dinner companion. An simple read, much to be recommended to those sympathetic to both human frailty and human heroism as well as to those who simply admire what Churchill accomplished.
Very entertaining and informative concerning one of the worlds amazing leaders, leading at the right time. Unlike today he and Roosevelt were statesman, visionaries and leaders that knew instinctively how to communicate with the very day man and woman. In today's Washington we lack leadership at very level, except maybe the FBI with Comey, whether Republican or Democrat we have a crisis of failed leadership in an extremely risky world, filled with the highest level of lies, deceit and minipulation, but Churchill's story demonstrates that with with true leadership the globe can survive, I am not sure we have those leaders today. But, have fun a unbelievable accounting of a amazing leader and how he lead the globe with Roosevelt to peace, which todays leaders seem determined to destroy.
The author writes (p. 199): "The public has given no one a mandate to pursue a policy of privileging girls." And yet, as Christina Hoff Sommers repeats in the revised edition of her 2000 book, a little group of ideological feminists have claimed that Americans should do that, and from a lot of quarters there is evidence that they have. This "New and Revised Edition" of "THE WAR AGAINST BOYS" is a welcome return of an necessary book. Sommers, a philosopher by education and a mother of two boys, shows that the trend she identified in the late 1990s to see boys as defective girls and therefore somehow in need of retooling has continued, and its effects have spread. The importance of Sommers' book lies especially in pointing out the misrepresentations of fact by leading advocates of making over boyhood. She takes to task the reputation of a major research institution for having missed oversight of assertions presumably based on scientific investigation that are, in fact, wishful thinking on the part of high-profile faculty. Her target is Carol Gilligan in particular, who managed to convince necessary activists, journalists and others in the media about the presumed defectiveness of boys that results from the dominance of patriarchy in American society. Go to this book if you are a parent. Take it to school administrators especially if your kids are in grade school but realize that contempt for men and masculinity is now pervasive in higher education as well. If you are paying $50,000+ a year for a son's education, check out what courses are being taught that are disparage the young men in class. Sommers is a feminist in the method anyone who is clear-thinking is a feminist: someone who supports women in having access to education and employment opportunities of every kind. She is, however, a potent enemy of ideological feminists (contemporary "gender equity" feminists). As Sommers points out, regardless of the claims of social constructivists, boys and girls are different, and they cannot be refashioned to feel and experience and act in ways that are not part of their disposition (her word). There are biobehavioral realities that are well-documented but simply ignored by a little group of feminists (male and female) who insist loudly that even the chance of primary differences between the sexes exist. She is a fan of masculinity in the traditional sense. It is beautiful obvious that so are MOST women, too. Sommers provides examples of schools that hurt boys and schools that help them. She points out that federal government opposes a lot of initiatives in public and personal schooling that would help boys in their growing up. She notes that in Australia and the UK such efforts to do better by boys are under way, but they are nipped in the bud in the States, mostly by virtue of the threat of law suits. She points to the complicity of all three branches of the federal government in standing in the method of even trying boy-friendly practices in school. Finally, she repeats that the tendency of thinking of boys as somehow psychologically ill as a effect of being raised as their bodies tell them they must experience the globe must be distinguished from the consequence of true hurt suffered by boys in an environment that tells them there is something wrong with them for being boys. This is an necessary book for speaking out on behalf of boys and cutting through the rhetoric and false claims of so-called gender professionals who have taken over academe and whose pronouncements resound in the echo chamber (her metaphor) of the media.
A realistic look at gender deference problems from one who fancied herself as a feminist. She shins a bright light on a lot of underlying problems that have resulted in a very one sided perspective of gender inequality.
Fascinating acc of gender in education. A definite conversation starter and a useful text for classes in education, gender, and assessment. Recommended for teachers and those who wish to read more about these issues.
This book is a very amazing read. It lays out the issues facing boys in education very well, including the different arguments, amazing actors, poor actors, citations, statistics, you name it.I passed this book onto a male mate of mine and we've had several amazing discussion about it. He's passed it on to his wife and possibly his kids who may be is book covers a subject that gets very small media coverage. I'm very appreciative of Christina Sommers's work.
This book is very compelling and straightforward in the case it puts forward that there is a "war versus boys." It is also very clear and precise in the arguments and evidence precented to create the case. At the same time the author does not "attack" needlessly the "other side," but just states where they are lacking in making their case. Overall it is a very entertaining and informative book.
Christina Hoff Sommers really packed the book with info regarding our schools. The evidence provided is extremely startling due to the sheer amount of sources and their nature. This book is a must read for anyone who wants to be informed about the state of men in our schools!
