About The Author

In a room with a view over Tahrir Square – 2011

Alisdare Hickson is a graduate of the London School of Economics and holds a PhD in sociology from the University of Essex. He has one previous publication which also focused on elites and methods of indoctrination – The Poisoned Bowl; Sex, Repression and the Public School System – a social history of  homosexuality in British public schools, published first by Constable in 1995 and then, in paperback, by Duckworth in 1996.

He hopes to post more extracts from his current research on appeasement propaganda and British support for dictatorships over the next few months. The extracts of the first part of his book posted here focus on the 1930s and the British appeasement of Nazi Germany.
