Summary "This book is a reappraisal of Sir Anthony Eden's conduct of foreign relations during the Suez crisis of 1956. It challenges previous assumptions and demonstrates that Eden was not as bellicose as has been alleged. Jonathan Pearson traces Eden's conduct of crisis management from July up to his decision to use force on 14 October, focusing on the Prime Minister's personality and influences. He details the confusion and failed negotiation attempts that eventually led to the 'reluctant gamble'."--BOOK JACKET
