    REVIEW Churchills Trial 100 Churchills TrialFirst book I've read about Churchill but based on the numerous direct excerpts in here next time I'll read Churchill's writings directly It seems like he himself is such an excellent writer The first two chapters of this book were written in a style aimed at US college undergrads which would have been suitable for high school students 30 odd years ago Chapters 3 were interesting I liked the way the last chapters tied Churchill's thinking into today's major issues I think I will add some of his writings to my reading pile

    REVIEW Churchills Trial 100 Churchills TrialThis book provides a great insight into the mind of Winston Churchill It describes in detail his views on government's roles in both war and peace time I found particularly interesting Churchill's views on the evils of socialism and the disastrous path in which it leads At the same time that Churchill condemned socialism he realized the need for liberal government to provide for basic social services and a safety net for the poor and others who fall upon unforeseen misfortune Churchill was a strong believer in capitalism and he believed that the best way to serve the entire population both rich and poor is through a robust free market system Still he saw the possible down sides of uncontrolled capitalism and sought ways to remedy them He realized that this actually strengthened capitalism and the free market Churchill foresaw many of the problems that we are facing today in our own country This is a must read for anyone who wants a clearer understandin
