Documents on British policy overseas  ser. 1, v. 9 ~ ser. 3, v. 7

Edited by Hamilton, Keith; Edited by Salmon, Patrick

A fascinating collection of British foreign policy documents covering reactions in Whitehall to political change and revolution in the Mediterranean basin from 1973 to 1976. This volume contains many previously unpublished documents, including Joint Intelligence Committee papers, which cast new light on key events, such as the international crisis triggered by the coup against Archbishop Makarios in Cyprus, Turkey's military intervention in the island, the overthrow of the Caetano regime in Portugal, and the death of Franco in Spain. During 1973-76, years generally associated with East/West detente in Europe, NATO's southern flank was plunged into crisis by a revolution in Portugal and a coup d'etat in Cyprus. Political turmoil in Portugal, Turkey's military intervention in Cyprus, the collapse of the military government in Greece, and the threat of a Greco-Turkish War, all emphasized the vulnerability of the alliance to regime change in the Mediterranean. The Western allies had also to prepare for the death of two ageing dictators in Spain and Yugoslavia, and the possible entry of Communists into government in France and Italy. This volume draws upon the records of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Cabinet Office and the Ministry of Defence, to document the reactions of Harold Wilson's Labour government to these developments. This book will be of great interest to all students of contemporary British history, international history, European history, international relations, politics and diplomacy.

This book is a collection of diplomatic documents describing the development of British relations with the Nordic countries between the end of the Second World War and the defeat of the Labour Government in 1951. The end of the Second World War brought hopes of building a new society in Western Europe. This volume documents Foreign Office concerns about the range of problems, both multilateral and bilateral, which still remained to be resolved in the Nordic area, and describes the evolution of policies to deal with them. The Soviet Union, which in May 1945 already occupied parts of Norway and Denmark and dominated Finland, was perceived as a growing threat. The Nordic region was considered to be of significant strategic importance during this period. The documents describe the process whereby Britain attempted to encourage Scandinavian countries away from their support for neutrality and, by enlisting American support, began the process which led to the signature of the Atlantic Treaty in 1949, signed by Norway, Denmark and Iceland. They also include material describing the establishment of Information Research Department (formed to counteract Soviet propaganda) and illustrating some of its methods. Some documents not previously in the public domain have been declassified for this volume. Most are drawn from the archives of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, but there are also a number of Prime Ministerial and Cabinet Office documents. This book will be of much interest to students of the Cold War, European history, British political history, international history and IR in general.

This volume is comprised of a collection of diplomatic documents covering British reactions to, and policy towards, the collapse of the German Democratic Republic and the unification of Germany in 1989-90. The peaceful unification of Germany in 1989-90 brought a dramatic end to the Cold War. This volume documents official British reactions to the collapse of East Germany and the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the evolution of British policy during the ?Two plus Four? negotiations that provided the international framework for the merger of the two German states. All of the documents fall within the UK's 30-year rule and have therefore not previously been in the public domain. Most are drawn from the archives of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, but there are also a large number of Prime Ministerial files from the Cabinet Office archives. These are of particular interest for the light they throw on the views of Margaret Thatcher. Taken together, the documents show that despite Mrs Thatcher's well-known reservations about German unity, the United Kingdom played a vital and constructive role in the negotiations that helped to bring it about. This volume will be of great interest to students of International History, British Political History, and European Politics and International Relations in general. Patrick Salmon is Chief Historian at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office. Keith Hamilton is a Historian at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and Senior Editor of Documents on British Policy Overseas. Stephen Twigge is a Senior Historian at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.

This is the first volume of Documents of British Policy Overseas ever to be produced in electronic format, complementing three earlier volumes in the series covering East/West relations between 1968 and 1976. Focusing primarily upon intra-allied relations, this new text also traces the evolution of the transatlantic relationship during Britain's first year in the European Community. Drawing upon the archives of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the Cabinet Office and other Whitehall Departments, it reproduces on CD-ROM 568 fully-searchable facsimile documents, over fifty of which (mainly from the Brimelow and Douglas-Home papers) are otherwise unavailable to researchers. The documents' official correspondence, ministerial briefing notes, Cabinet papers and Joint Intelligence Committee reports cover British reactions to Henry Kissinger's attempt to redefine America's link with Europe through his 'Year of Europe' initiative, the energy crisis and the fourth Arab/Israeli War of October 1973. They shed new light on some of the more occult aspects of President Nixon's diplomacy, and reveal the problems faced by Edward Heath's government in seeking to maintain its close ties with Washington while trying to establish its credentials as a fully committed EC member state.
