Britannia Overruled

by David Reynolds

Part of the Studies In Modern History Series

Britannia Overruled 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.

Britannia Overruled Press Reviews

'Essential; Required reading from now on by anyone wishing to understand Britain's changing place in the twentieth-century world.' Times Literary Supplement 'A welcome blend of two different sorts of history: both a narrative of decline and a philosophical investigation into the nature and logic of power.' The Independent
