MINISTERS AT WAR
by Jonathan Schneer
published by Basic Books, 2015.
Review 'Like Abraham Lincoln before him, Winston Churchill
proved himself a great war leader, as everyone knows.
But Jonathan Schneer's achievement is to show us how Churchill
too had to work with "a team of rivals" in his own war cabinet.
It is a story told with great assurance and studded with vivid personal detail.'
Peter Clark, author of Mr. Churchill's Profession
'Written with brio and a rich command of the sources, Jonathan Schneer
tells the fascinating and comparatively neglected story of Winston Churchill's
Grand Coalition Cabinet of Tories, Labour, and Liberals, the political leader
who played crucial roles in winning the war against Hitler.
Not surprisingly, they were also from time to tim at war against one another
and the Prime Minister. Churchill, despite his flaws, still emerges as the
hero essential for the saving of Britain and her allies.
This is a deeply insightful and important contribution to the understanding
of the most important event of the twentieth century.
Peter Stansky, Stanford University '
Jonathan Schneer's gripping account of Churchill and the men who worked wit
him during World War II succeeds in casting new light on a familiar subject.
This is popular history at its best.' -- Richard Toye, Professor of History, Universit
of Exeter 'An engrossing account of how Churchill led his ministry during the
Second World War, a team of rivals who never forgot politics however great
the peril to the nation. Jonathan Schneer treats his larger-than-life subjects
with great scholarship and shrewdness.'
Andrew Roberts F.R.S.A., bestselling author of Napoleon:
A Life 'A smoothly written and insightful examination of the men who aided
Churchill during the years fraught with danger from the Nazi war machine.
For most readers, this will be a book that cannot be put down until the last
page is reached. An exceptional history on an extremely important topic,
which should be acquired by all libraries.' Library Journal 'A striking look
inside the British government during a time when some of the most
interesting characters of a challenging era were fighting for both the nation's
salvation and their own ambitions. Churchill's role as a wartime leader is
well-known from a myriad of histories, but this is one of the best recent
treatments of his role as a head of government. Clear, thoroughly entertaining
and full of lively detail.' Kirkus Reviews 'Scholarly, yet grippingly readable'
Spectator 'Lucid and compelling... both scholarly and entertaining' Literar
Review 'Very timely. gripping and a pleasure to read' Press Association
'Refreshing... brings a different eye and perspective... convincing..
highly readable' BBC History, lead review 'Insightful...
Schneer has done a wonderful job' Good

The Canadian Indigenous/Native Studies Association (CINSA)
Conference 2015 will be hosted by the First Peoples Studies Progra

Studies program recently received government of Quebec accreditation

James Bay Agreement of 1975. Come honour and celebrate thes
two important events by participating in the first CINSA gathering since 2008.
The conference's theme borrows from the Anishinaabeg vision that asks all
people to consider themselves from the standpoint of Seven Generation
Back and Seven Generations Forward. Our peoples have endured much
over the last Seven Generations, but through our ancestors efforts we
have resisted and survived. Now the current generation is looking forward
Seven Generations to ensure our continued survival as peoples.
As part of the process we have embarked on a path of reconciliatio
with ourselves and settlers. We hope that such efforts will help ensure
our collective survivance through reconciliation.
The conference organizers seek original works examining the themes of
"survivance" and "reconciliation" in Quebec, Canada, North America, and
the World in relationship to Indigenous peoples and nations. Other topic
or themes will be considered. The organizing committee invites scholars
and community members to submit proposals, in French or English, for:
individual papers, panel sessions, posters, roundtables, workshops,
