History of Foreign Policy of Great Britain
The book was published with the financial support of Vladimir Mikhailovich Stolyarenko and Alexander Valerievich Bondarenko
This is the
first textbook in Russian historiography to dedicate itself to the evolution of
Britain's foreign policy from the early new era when the traditions of European
balance of power politics and trade and colonial expansion were being forged,
right up to the second decade of XXI century. This work traces the change in
Britain's position in international relations; her development into a potent
world power with a global breadth of interests and the struggle to maintain
this status on the backdrop of increasing competition on the international
arena in XX century; and her consequent drop from the category “great powers”
to “moderate powers of the first degree”.
position in the examination is held by the analysis of the main direction in
Britain's foreign policy – transatlantic, European, colonial empire transformed
into the Commonwealth, and also East-West relations, in which Britain always
played one of the leading roles.
heart of the work – a solidification of the longstanding experience in teaching
of the authors who lectured, over a long period of time, corresponding courses
in the Moscow State Institute of International Relations and the history
faculty of the Lomonosov Moscow State University – lies the study of archives
as well as native and foreign sources.
