Political Studies Review"That the book unites leading academic specialists and policy experts from non-governmental organisations is a major attraction. Let us hope the activities of this broad coalition are sustained; foreign policy is too important to be left to politicians and civil servants."
Tim Dunne, Times Higher Education Supplement
“A valuable addition to the debate about the future of UK foreign policy.”
"Offers fresh thinking on the UK’s relationship with key countries and regions, from the US to Europe, from the Middle East to China."
Development Resources Review (OXFAM)
Thought-provoking ... a well-written and accessible broad overview of foreign policy under Blair's premiership ... students of international relations and of politics, both at undergraduate and postgraduate level, would find this worth a read.
Political Studies Review
"This century will be shaped by the choice between a world that looks outwards, embraces multilateralism and seeks to shape globalization in the interests of social justice, or a world in which isolation, protectionism and narrow nationalism hold sway. This book is an important contribution to the question of how we build a safer, fairer world."
Rt Hon. Hilary Benn, UK Secretary of State for the Environment
"This is an important, enlightened but measured assessment of the failings of British foreign policy that led to the debacle of Iraq. It also helps to chart a more progressive course for the future."
