Overview

This book, originally published in 1991, discusses how Britain found itself in a radically different world in the 1990s. The events of the closing months of the 1980s in Eastern Europe, and the move towards an economically and politically integrated Western Europe, have heralded a distinct stage in international relations. In this book, leading academics in the fields of political economy, foreign policy analysis, defence studies and political theory offer alternative approaches to the study of British foreign policy. Each contributor surveys relevant literature of his/her topic and then considers the major questions that any analysis of Britain in the world in the 1990s must face. This book examines the study of 1990s Britain in world politics and the academic perspectives that bear upon it. Its multidisciplinary approach will ensure it is read by all students and specialists interested in the recent history of British, European and international politics.
