British foreign policy in the age of the American Revolution by H. M Scott( Book )

15 editions published between 1990 and 2000 in English and Italian and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first detailed and comprehensive study of the British foreign policy before and during the war that led to the loss of the American colonies. Using a wide range of sources, Scott examines the problems faced by Britain after the Seven Years War and the way in which they were exacerbated during the mid-1760s by its British statesmen. He proceeds to chart the limited recovery started later in the decade, the renewed setbacks following the American revolt in 1775, and the subsequent intervention of France and Spain. The resulting isolation is shown to have been the result of a realignment of the European powers which undermined many of the traditional premises of British diplomacy. A scholarly reassessment of British diplomacy, this volume analyzes both the impact of the personalities involved and the successes and failures of their policies
The emergence of the Eastern powers, 1756-1775 by H. M Scott( Book )

19 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and German and held by 368 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout the nineteenth century, international relations in Europe were dominated by five great powers - Britain, France, Russia, Austria and Prussia. The creation of this system has been located traditionally in the long struggle with revolutionary and Napoleonic France. By contrast, this study demonstrates that its origins lie half a century earlier. During the third quarter of the eighteenth century, the European states-system was transformed by the military rise of Russia and Prussia in the Seven Years War of 1756–63. Eastern Europe became pre-eminent, and during the 1770s Poland was partitioned for the first time, while Russia and Austria also seized territory from the Ottoman empire. Europe's centre of gravity moved sharply eastwards, and by the later 1770s Russia was emerging as the leading continental power. This study, based upon manuscript and printed sources from six countries, provides a comprehensive analysis of these crucial events

Evaluation of pyrrones as membranes by H. M Scott( Book )

5 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 17 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The facile absorption of water by polyimidazopyrrolones (pyrrones) suggested a feasibility study to use films of the polymers as membranes for the purification of water by reverse osmosis. This report describes direct osmosis measurements of water, salt, and urea fluxes through Pyrrone membranes. The data indicate comparable flux values and superior water-to-salt permeabilities of the Pyrrones relative to symmetric cellulose acetate membranes. Coupled with better mechanical strength and chemical resistance, these results suggest that the successful fabrication of asymmetric Pyrrone membranes could lead to substantial improvements over asymmetric cellulose acetate, from which the best reverse osmosis membranes are currently prepared
