Superbly readable and revealing letters, full of malice and gossip, from a master historian When they met in 1947 Trevor-Roper, a young historian at Christ Church, Oxford, was 33. Berenson, the world-famous art critic, was 82, frail but still intensely curious about the world. Trevor Roper promised to write to him and his letters continued until Berenson's death in in 1959. Elegantly constructed, beautifully and precisely written, they are shot through with high-octane malice, sharp judgements and blistering comments, and many wonderfully funny episodes. Trevor-Roper was an intellectual heavyweight, but subjects range widely: several brilliant set-pieces on Oxford college elections, books, journalism, publishing, politics (postwar Europe, ex-Nazis and collaborators, the Cold War, Suez, etc), history and history-writing, personal life (including marriage to Earl Haig's daughter Alexandra after her messy divorce), travel, gossip, and so on. He has a memorable journey on a pilgrims' bus in Persia, goes behind the Iron Curtain to meet Communist dignitaries and speeds in his glamorous grey Bentley to visit duchesses in the Scottish borders. Figures in the letters include Evelyn Waugh, Isaiah Berlin, A.L. Rowse, Anthony Eden, Gerald Brenan, A.J.P.Taylor, Arnold Toynbee, Dimitri Shostakovitch, C.S. Lewis and Harold Macmillan.

As a British Intelligence Officer during World War II, Hugh Trevor-Roper was expressly forbidden from keeping a diary due to the sensitive and confidential nature of his work. He had many high-placed enemies in the Secret Intelligence Service who would have been pleased to use his journals to have him court-martialled or dismissed. However, he confided a record of his thoughts, contacts and plans to a series of slender notebooks inscribed OHMS (‘On His Majesty’s Service’). The Wartime Journals reveal the voice and experiences of a war-time ‘backroom boy’ who spent most of the war engaged in highly-confidential intelligence work in England - including breaking the cipher code of the German secret service, the Abwehr. He became an expert in German resistance plots and after the war interrogated many of Hitler’s immediate circle, investigated Hitler’s death in the Berlin bunker and personally retrieved Hitler’s will from its secret hiding place. His writings tell of Whitehall officials, Chelsea literary coteries, Oxford dons, Secret Service men, the Home Counties professional classes, Northumberland gentry and Irish raconteurs ‘making do’ under war conditions - of his personal experience of the Blitz, of rationing, of cold, hunger and discomfort. The journals are an eloquent and evocative contribution to the history of the war-time Home Front. The posthumous discovery of Trevor-Roper’s secret journals - unknown even to his family and closest confidants - is an exciting archival find and provides an unusual and privileged view of the Allied war effort against Nazi Germany. The journals include some of the elegant, haunting notes made by Trevor-Roper during his post-war work and Trevor-Roper’s inquisitive, analytic intelligence underlies every line. The resulting book offers an engaging - sometimes mischievous - and reflective study of both the human comedy and personal tragedy of wartime.

Hugh Trevor-Roper's experiences working for the Secret Intelligence Service (MI6) during the war had a profound impact on him and he later observed the world of intelligence with particular sharpness. To him, the subject of wartime espionage was as worthy of profound investigation and reflection as events from the more distant past. Expressing his observations through some of his most ironic and entertaining prose, Trevor-Roper wrote with a freedom he could not express publicly due to the Official Secrets Act. Based on previously unpublished material - including an extraordinary and previously-unseen correspondence with the exiled spy Kim Philby - this book is a sharp, revealing and personal first-hand account of the intelligence world in World War II and its aftermath.

The first biography of the great historian whose career was made and unmade by Hitler. Hugh Trevor-Roper's life is a rich subject for a biography - with elements of Greek tragedy, comedy and moments of high farce. Clever, witty and sophisticated, Trevor-Roper was the most brilliant historian of his generation. Until his downfall, he seemed to have everything: wealth and connections, a chair at Oxford, a beautiful country house, an aristocratic wife, and, eventually, a title of his own. Eloquent and versatile, fearless and formidable, he moved easily between Oxford and London, between the dreaming spires of scholarship and the jostling corridors of power. He developed a lucid prose style which he used to deadly effect. He was notorious for his acerbic attacks on other historians, but ultimately tainted his own reputation with a catastrophic error when he authenticated the forged 'Hitler Diaries'. Adam Sisman sheds new light on this fascinating and dramatic episode, but also shows that there was much more to Hugh Trevor-Roper's career than the fiasco of the Hitler Diaries hoax that became his epitaph. From wartime code-breaking to grilling Nazis while the trail was still fresh in 1945 (and finding Hitler's will buried inside a bottle), to his wide-ranging interests, his snobbery and his malice, his formidable post-war feuds with Evelyn Waugh, Tawney, Toynbee, Taylor and many others, and his secret and passionate affair with an older, married woman. A study in both success and failure, Adam Sisman's biography is a revealing and personal story of a remarkable life.

Late in 1945, Trevor-Roper was appointed by British Intelligence in Germany to investigate conflicting evidence surrounding Hitler's final days and to produce a definitive report on his death. The author, who had access to American counterintelligence files and to German prisoners, focuses on the last ten days of Hitler's life, April 20-29, 1945, in the underground bunker in Berlin—a bizarre and gripping episode punctuated by power play and competition among Hitler's potential successors. "From exhaustive research [Trevor-Roper] has put together a carefully documented, irrefutable, and unforgettable reconstruction of the last days in April, 1945."—New Republic "A book sound in its scholarship, brilliant in its presentation, a delight for historians and laymen alike."—A. J. P. Taylor, New Statesman

Many social workers and welfare workers are employed in positions where they deal with involuntary clients, particularly in corrective services, child protection, mental health and residential care. These positions are demanding, and require specific skills. Working with Involuntary Clients is a practical guide to working with both the clients and their families. Chris Trotter's pro-social model offers a way to work in partnership with involuntary clients. The model emphasises clarifying roles, promoting pro-social values, dealing with issues of authority and establishing goals. The approach is integrated, systematic and evidence-based. Illustrated with case examples, the first edition of Working with Involuntary Clients has been widely used by social work and welfare students and as a reference for professionals. This second edition has been fully updated and includes new examples, new research findings, and new material on case management, different intervention models and evidence-based practice. 'This book is the definitive work on practice with involuntary clients. Trotter draws on his own extensive practice experience and the most recent national and international research to provide practical evidence-based guidelines for working with involuntary clients across several fields of practice.' - Professor Allan Borowski, School of Social Work and Social Policy, La Trobe University '. . . a valuable publication in the developing literature on identifying working approaches that are conducive to effective changes or promising outcomes. It has been written as a non-technical practice handbook and its presentation is clear and systematic, without over-simplification.' - British Journal of Social Work
