Publisher Comments:

Britannia Overruled has established itself as the pre-eminent overview of 20th century British foreign policy

  • 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.

Synopsis:

This book 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. For this Second Edition, David Reynolds has added a new chapters and extends his lively and incisive analysis to the beginning of the new millennium.
