He was a party to British efforts to achieve the 'economic appeasement' of Europe in the 1930s and went on to be a key figure in promoting, and ultimately establishing, the United Nations. Subsequently, he was to assist in the construction of the Atlantic Alliance, was to hold prominent diplomatic and intelligence positions during the Cold War, and, following his appointment as Ambassador in Paris, he was to champion the cause of British membership of the European Communities. In addition to providing the life of an extraordinary, and sometimes difficult, figure, this study sheds new light on important themes in modern international history.
