Security in British Politics 1945-99 by D. Keohane

Keohane examines the main British political parties' attitude to Britain's policy on three key security issues, namely the use of force, nuclear weapons and security in Northern Ireland. He analyses how each of the parties viewed conflicts at Suez, the Falklands and the Gulf, elucidates their perspective on nuclear weapons and concludes with a review of their attitude towards security in Northern Ireland. The book finds the parties' policies reflect their distinctive views on security while international conditions often severely affect the policy pursued.
