This book consists of some thirty speeches, largely on foreign affairs, delivered between May 31, 1937, and May 11, 1939, in defense of a policy which the author has now abandoned for one diametrically opposed to it. These pronouncements sound thoroughly sincere and thoroughly uninspired, and as the epitome of the mental and moral outlook of the British middle class they furnish an excellent explanation of Mr. Chamberlain's hold on his electorate.
