The Labour governments 1964-70 by Steven Fielding( )

5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,115 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is the first in the new series The Labour governments, 1964-70 and concentrates on Britain's domestic policy during Harold Wilson's tenure as Prime Minister. The book deals, in particular, with how the Labour government and Labour party as a whole tried to come to terms with the 1960s 'cultural revolution'. It is grounded in original research, takes unique account of responses from Labour's grass roots and from Wilson's ministerial colleagues, and constructs a 'total history' of the party at this critical moment in history. Steven Fielding situates Labour in its wider cultural context and focuses on how the party approached issues such as the apparent transformation of the class structure, the changing place of women, rising black immigration, the apparently widening generation gap and increasing calls for direct participation in politics. The book will be of interest to all those concerned with the development of contemporary British politics and society as well as those researching the 1960s. Together with the other books in the series, on international policy and economic policy, it provides an unrivalled insight into the development of Britain under Harold Wilson's government"--Publisher's description
Twentieth-century diplomacy : a case study of British practice, 1963-1976 by John W Young( )

15 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In contrast to most works of international history, which dwell on particular relationships, strategies, wars or crises, the questions in this book concern the way in which diplomacy was actually conducted. The period 1963-76 saw significant changes in diplomatic practice globally. It was particularly a time of change for Britain as the country negotiated its declining world power and joined the European Community and as economic problems forced spending cuts. Looking at the reform of the British Diplomatic Service and Foreign Office as well as the role of ambassadors, the use of 'special' envoys, summits and state visits, John Young sheds light on how diplomacy was organised in order to put into effect the country's foreign policy and on how diplomatic practice changed over time to make it more effective. Drawing comparisons with other countries, especially the United States, this study focuses on the means of diplomacy rather than the ends."--Jacket

Winston Churchill's last campaign : Britain and the Cold War, 1951-5 by John W Young( Book )

22 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Largely because of his famous 'Iron Curtain' speech, Churchill is often remembered as a determined Cold Warrior. Yet, for all his fervent anti-communism, he saw the creation of the Western Alliance as a step not towards war, but towards negotiations with the USSR. John Young shows how, as Prime Minister in the 1950s, Churchill hoped for a summit meeting with Soviet leaders, an end to the Cold War, and an era of peaceful scientific advancement by humankind. Professor Young examines the reasons why Churchill failed in this, his last great political campaign, reasons which included his own failing health, the scepticism of allies abroad, and the opposition of his ministers at home. Nonetheless, argues the author, the outlook which Churchill developed in the first decade of the Cold War made him the father of European detente. This is the first full critical analysis of the issue which dominated the last active years of one of the greatest statesmen of the twentieth century."--Jacket
The Longman companion to Cold War and detente, 1941-91 by John W Young( Book )

11 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 448 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the third volume to appear in the new series of Longman Companions to History under the General Editorship of Chris Cook and John Stevenson. Each volume will provide a handy reference work to a major area of historical study, and is written by a leading scholar in the field. Today, the Cold War is a chapter of history that is ended; whatever the future brings, it will be different. John W. Young's book is therefore timely as well as useful. It surveys East-West relations, in all their manifestations, from the Grand Alliance of the Second World War to the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. For most of this fifty-year span, the tensions of the Cold War were the dominating fact of world history; and this volume provides a concise guide to its major characters, conflicts, crises and conferences, setting them in their full international context. It contains a major Chronology, set out in 12 stages, which draws together all the different aspects and theatres of the Cold War into a single 'narrative'; concise accounts of 70 Crises and Conflicts, and their significance; notes on 28 Conferences and Summits; notes on 40 Treaties and Organizations; lists and dates of the key Office-holders in the USA, USSR, China, Great Britain, France, (West) Germany, the United Nations and NATO; concise Biographies of 103 major political figures of the Cold War; a Glossary of terms; statistical data on the US/Soviet balance of Strategic nuclear weapons 1956-79; and an extended annotated Bibliography. Though centred on the international policies of the USA and the USSR, the book throws light on almost every aspect of postwar international history from the rise of Mao's China to the fall of the Warsaw Pact, ranging from Vietnam to Angola, from Afghanistan to Cuba, from Margaret Thatcher to Kim II Sung. The great wealth of information it contains has been carefully selected and presented to meet the practical needs of students and other readers. As with the series generally, it is intended as a reader-friendly desk-companion for continuous use, rather than a shelf-book for occasional reference. It will be an invaluable aid to anyone interested in the history and politics of modern times

"In 1993 Longman published John W. Young's Companion to Cold War and Detente, 1941-91. Now, five years later, Professor Young has revised and updated the original book to take account of recent, momentous events. Although the Cold War is a chapter of history that has ended, nevertheless we all still live with its effects and its legacy. As ever the book surveys East-West relations, in all their manifestations, from the Grand Alliance of the Second World War to the aftermath of the collapse of the Soviet Union in the 1990s."--BOOK JACKET. "Though centred on the international policies of the USA and the USSR, the book throws light on almost every aspect of postwar international history from the rise of Mao's China to the Bosnian civil war, ranging from Vietnam to Angola, from Afghanistan to Cuba, from Margaret Thatcher to Kim Il Sung. Undoubtedly it will continue to be an invaluable aid to anyone interested in the history and politics of modern times."--Jacket

David Bruce and diplomatic practice : an American ambassador in London, 1961-9 by John W Young( Book )

8 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 110 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"David Bruce (1898-1977) was a prominent American diplomat, who served in France, Germany, and the UK. His work is examined here to provide an in-depth look at the practice of diplomacy and the role of the ambassador as diplomatic actor. This thorough survey aims to investigate the relevance of the resident embassy to modern diplomacy. To do so, it focuses on the ambassador's daily work as a diplomat, looking at his role in promoting friendly relations, his political reporting, policy advising, as well as the role of his staff and his relations with others in the Foreign Service. It also addresses major issues such as the debate over the 'death of the embassy, ' showing that ambassadors remain vital actors in the relations between major powers. The work integrates theoretical material on diplomatic practice and the case study of a highly regarded diplomat. This unique, readable study will appeal to students in diplomacy, international relations, American politics, as well as to trainee and junior diplomats"--
