Description
In her classic study of WWII, Dame Rebecca West interprets the impulse of treachery and betrayal. From the trials of William Joyce and John Amery, the renowned historian takes the reader from a London devastated by war into the inner world of "sufferings which overtake people who live unnaturally and cut the bonds which bind them to their own country."

display_descriptionA gripping profile that takes readers inside World War II spy rings and gets to the heart of what it means to betray one's country. Throughout her career, Rebecca West dug into psyches, real and fictional, to try to understand the meaning of betrayal. In the aftermath of World War II, West was incensed when several wartime turncoats were tried with seeming indifference - and worse, sympathy - from the British public. In exploring these traitors' origins, crimes, and motivations, West exposes how class division, greed, and discrimination can taint loyalties and redraw the relationships between individuals and their fatherland. A fascinating book, The Meaning of Treason combines the intrigue of a spy novel with West's classic, careful dissection of man's moral struggles.
