The compelling essays brought together in this collection provide new assessments of the course of British foreign policy from the Glorious Revolution to the Treaty of Maastricht in 1991, its underlying principles as well as Britain's standing in international politics. The essays examine these issues through the prism of the personalities of those Foreign Secretaries and Prime Ministers who had a major impact on the course and conduct of British foreign policy, from the elder Pitt in the eighteenth century to Margaret Thatcher at the end of the twentieth. This collection of essays offers a powerful challenge to many traditional assumptions about Britain's decline as a great power, her imperial and continental commitments, and the contentious issue of 'Europe'.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The Makers of British Foreign Policy is a rich collection of essays of unusually high quality on Britain's chief foreign policy-makers, from the elder Pitt to Lady Thatcher...These studies can be read as case histories in the rise and decline of British power, revealing a far more irregular process of change than is so often assumed...This book is well worth reading. The essays are varied and always thought-provoking.' - Zara Steiner, Times Literary Supplement
