This is an incisive, controversial history of the great British peace movements of our century-- those 'protests' about war that broke through 'the normal apathy of the country in the matter of foreign affairs', as a Whitehall mandarin once put it.Hinton argues forcefully that peace 'visionaries' have often had an exaggerated faith in the power of the British state to set the world to rights.
