Dark Valley, Paperback (March 2001)
In this worldwide survey of the 1930s, Brendon examines the great powers and their leaders and investigates how, and how far, contemporary minds knew what they knew, and the extent to which our own view of the time is fogged by their uncertainty. He illuminates a period when the world was struggling with one crisis and hurtling towards another.
