The Longman companion to Cold War and detente, 1941-91 by John W Young( Book )

8 editions published between 1993 and 1994 in English and held by 439 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
Winston Churchill's last campaign : Britain and the Cold War, 1951-5 by John W Young( Book )

20 editions published between 1966 and 2011 in English and held by 417 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

Twentieth-century diplomacy : a case study of British practice, 1963-1976 by John W Young( Book )

14 editions published between 2008 and 2012 in English and held by 188 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

The Washington Embassy : British ambassadors to the United States, 1939-77 by Michael F Hopkins( Book )

11 editions published in 2009 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection provides the first comprehensive treatment of the role of British Ambassadors to Washington from the start of the Second World War to the late 1970s. Many general works on the subject have been written with only a passing mention for the individuals who are the subject of this book. Most general academic studies treat ambassadors as incidental to the real story, which tends to focus on Presidents and Prime Ministers, from Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill onwards. Even specialist studies of Anglo-American relations or of British foreign policy devote scant attention to t

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

7 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 57 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"--

Britain in global politics volume 2 : from churchill to blair by John W Young( Book )

This collection of essays focuses Britain's role in global affairs since the Second World War. The essays cover a broad field, from relations with Japan and China, through European and African developments, to defence planning in Whitehall. They include also political, economic, defence, ideological and religious dimensions and, even, 'futurology'. The essays in the collection offer fresh insights and new interpretations of the way in which a weakened Britain conducted its foreign policy in order to protect its interests and retain influence in international affairs. The book presents readers with wide-ranging perspectives on Britain and the World in the Cold War and post-Cold War eras, based on the latest available evidence. This collection of essays, along with the accompanying volume covering the period from Gladstone to Churchill, is published in memory of Saki Dockrill
The Labour governments, 1964-70, volume 1: Labour and cultural change by Steven Fielding( Book )

3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library 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
