Summary "This book shows that the national British Press generally shared a common revulsion against Nazi barbarities, which were well known. Beyond this common denominator, however, the British Press reacted to Nazi Germany mainly along Left-Right political lines over issues formulated a decade before the Nazi came to power and in many ways having little or nothing to do with Germany itself. Basing himself upon a careful reading of the ten major British daily and Sunday newspapers supplemented with important new material from the archives of The Times, the Manchester Guardian, and several collections of personal papers, Dr Gannon concludes that Hitler and his demands were like a funnel into which British attitudes on every question from armaments to xenophobia were poured: what emerged from the funnel was the single policy of appeasement."--Book Jacket.
