Executive summary: Architect of appeasement

Right-wing Prime Minister of England from 1937-40, noted for an isolationist foreign policy in the build-up to World War II. He played a key role in negotiating the Munich Agreement of 1938, which sought to appease Nazi Germany by ceding control of the Sudetenland region in Czechoslovakia to Adolf Hitler's regime. Chamberlain's name has since been synonymous with "appeasement", an object lesson said to prove the futility of compromise with Evil.
