Suitable for undergraduate courses in British History, International History and International Relations. Since its publication in 1991 Britannia Overruled has established itself as the pre-eminent overview of 20th century British foreign policy. It brings together the often separated histories of diplomacy, defence, economics and empire in a provocative reinterpretation of British 'decline'. It also offers a broader reflection on the nature of international power and the mechanisms of policymaking. *NEW - Looks at the impact of Europe and the Euro. *NEW - Looks at the 'Disunited' Kingdom. *Surveys the transformation of the modern world through the spread of industrialisation, the emergence of new powers and the reaction against imperialism. *Examines the reactions of British leaders to the upheavals of the twentieth century. *Looks at imperial, industrial and financial policy, at the armed forces, at government institutions and at domestic politics. *Draws on the work of political scientists to give the analysis a conceptual base.
