Matthew Hendley, Department of History has recently published a review article in the October 2016 issue of the Journal of British Studies [Volume 55, Number 4, pp. 843-45]. Dr. Hendley published a review of two recent books, Julie Gottlieb, ‘Guilty Women,’ Foreign Policy and Appeasement in Inter-War Britain. (Houndmills: Palgrave Macmillan, 2015) and Clarisse Berthezène, Training Minds for the War of Ideas: Ashridge College, the Conservative Party and the Cultural Politics of Britain, 1929-54 (Manchester University Press, 2015). Dr. Hendley argued that both books are prime examples of the new political history which has allowed fresh approaches to re-invigorate the histories of both appeasement and the political hegemony of Stanley Baldwin and the Conservatives in interwar Britain.
