Michael Dockrill's concise study of the early years of the Cold War between the Western Powers and Soviet Union has been widely acclaimed as an authoritative guide to the subject. In this second edition, he and Michael Hopkins bring the story up to the events of 1991, and also expand coverage of key topics.
This volume deals with aspects of British foreign policy from the late nineteenth century to the beginning of the Cold War in keeping with the scholarship of Dr Zara Steiner, to whom the book is offered as a tribute. The contributors are all well-established experts in the study of diplomacy and foreign policy, and their essays cover a wide variety of themes, from the influence of ambassadors on British foreign policy to the relations between Britain and the Soviet Union from 1941 to 1948. The book thus covers the half century from Britain's pre-eminent position as a world power at the end of the nineteenth century to her relative 'decline' during and after the Second World War.

A collection of essays by international historians which explore British diplomatic policy in the decade following the end of World War II. Topics include propaganda, atomic policy, Imperial problems, European unity and Britain's response to political crises in the Middle East and Far East.
This book analyses British official reactions to the apparent decline of France, politically, socially and economically, in the three years before the outbreak of war in Europe. The book is based on public and private archival sources and on the memoirs and biographies of leading British figures and describes the British Government's efforts to cope with the desperate strategic situation created by its own military weakness and the malaise of the Third Republic, its own potential great power ally in a war with the Axis powers.
"Strategy and Intelligence," which brings together original essays
by a number of leading authorities on various aspects of the First
World War, aims both to summarise the latest literature on
Britain's participation in that war and also to open up new lines
of investigation. These include the role of intelligence in land
and air battles; Anglo-American financial relations; Anglo-Russian
and Anglo-Irish relations; the British Labour movement in the war;
and the final campaigns of 1918, which led to the Allied victory.
These essays are written not only for the specialist but also to be
accessible to students and to the general reader.
