1684 Abdication, by Brian Inglis (read 3 Jan 1982) This is a book published in 1966 by a "popular historian" of England. It has no footnotes and is based on secondary sources in large part. It tells the story of Edward VIII's abdication. I found the book unfailingly interesting, and, covering, as it does, an event occurring just before my beginning what I consider intelligent and full awareness of "the news" I felt it very worthwhile to read. I usually think of the annexation of Austria in March of 1938 as the date when I began to systematically follow the news--I was 9 at the time. This book is rich in its study of the principals in the abdication crisis. I confess I like Stanley Baldwin and I approve of the way he handled the matter. Can one seriously say that things worked out other than for the best? The British monarchy is a fascinating study. ( )
