British appeasement was a controversial policy in the 1930s, and has remained so during the more than 50 years since the problems the policy were to solve exploded into World War II.
A Climate For Appeasement delves into one of the primary reasons the appeasers used to justify their policy, one often accepted to some degree by historians since that time: the existence of an anti-war climate of opinion held by many members of the British public. Did such a climate exist? If so, why did it, and how was it used by the appeasers? Those are the questions posed, and answered in this work.
