Perhaps the most influential figure in 20th century British, imperial, and world history, Winston S. Churchill has been the subject of numerous studies, biographies, and controversies, but not of a recent comprehensive bibliography. The most extensive and up-to-date bibliographic work on Churchill, this book provides a full historiographical survey and over 3,000 annotated entries on all of the important writings by and about Churchill. Reflecting Churchill's versatility, dynamism, and influence, the book emphasizes his background and context, covering, for instance, works on fifteen major controversies associated with Churchill, some thirty biographies ranging from those that glorify to solid, scholarly studies, to extreme revisionist attacks. The final historiographical chapter points to subjects that would benefit from further research. Divided into two parts, the book opens with a historiographical narrative, covering historical and biographical events associated with the life and times of Winston Churchill. In addition to chapters on archival material, reference works, and studies on a wide range of topics pertaining to Churchill's life and multi-faceted career, part I includes a section on Churchill and the Internet. The second half of the book includes 3099 annotated entries on all works cited in part I. The two parts are fully cross-referenced, and the book also includes a short chronology and full indexes. The book will provide a valuable resource for students, scholars, and other researchers interested in Churchill and his era.
