(Austen Chamberlain, wasn't he Neville's brother? Up until the 1930s the sentence would probably be reversed, and both were children of the dynamic and volatile Joseph Chamberlain, a self-made Birmingham millionaire-MP. Austen Chamberlain was one of the two British Tory leaders of the 20th Century who did not progress to become Prime Minister Austen was party of the Anglo Irish Treaty negotiating team, which ended in outraging his Conservative colleagues, and he ended up being deposed as Conservative party leader in 1922, mainly because of his loyalty as part of the Coalition. He was promoted to Foreign Secretary in 1924. Indeed this was the most successful part of his career, resulting in the Treaty of Locarno in 1925, which brought some level of rapprochement between Germany and France. His condescending and slightly resentful attitude to his half-brother Neville is well drawn, as is his loyal, but curmudgeonly, attitude to the various Conservative party leaders is well documented. Churchill said that Austen always plays the game, and always loses . The most memorable parts of the book were some quotes which demonstrates his judgment, he lamented that `Ireland was fatal influence in English politics')
