Reviews

'Britain in Global Politics offers a wide-ranging and fascinating glimpse into the field of British International History today. With such an impressive chronological, geographical, and thematic scope, it is somewhat inevitable that there is no central thread or tight editorial corset holding the various themes together. But this is not necessarily a weakness. Instead, the sheer breath of issues covered, the originality in some approaches, as well as the diverse methodological angles are vivid reminders of the hustling bustling field that is British International History today.' - Twentieth Century British History

'As the editors and contributors hoped, intellectual rigour and clarity of ideas presented in both volumes have resulted in a worthy tribute to a fine scholar.' - Diplomacy and Statecraft

'These volumes offer scholars a variety of subjects about Britain's role in global politics since the nineteenth century. Among the strongest contributions are the chapters about foreign policy that rely on interviews and sources directly from policymakers and the political elite [The volumes] offer solid essays for scholars interested in Britain's role in global affairs since the late nineteenth century and are an excellent tribute to the memory of Saki Dockrill.'- The Journal of the Historical Assiciation
