Tagged: Author

(1893-1964) UK publisher and author, whose Storm Over Europe (1930) expresses – through the history of a Ruritania caught in the trammels of twentieth-century thought and politics – a conservative Roman Catholic view of history which his contemporaries thought eccentrically intense. In 1954 he declared Arnold J Toynbee (1889-1975) a traitor to the Christian world. [JC]
