Britain's retreat from east of Suez : the choice between Europe and the world? by Saki Dockrill( Book )

15 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 333 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book, based on recently declassified documents in Britain and the USA, is the first detailed account of Britain's East of Suez decision, which was taken by the Harold Wilson Government in 1967-8. Contrary to received opinion, the author argues that the decision was not taken hastily as a result of the November 1967 devaluation. Nor is there any hard evidence to support the notion that there existed a 'Pound-Defence' deal with the USA. Despite Washington's pressure to maintain Britain's East of Suez role, the decision was taken by the Labour Government on the basis of a long-term effort to re-examine Britain's world role since 1959, and it marked the end of an era for postwar Britain."--Jacket
Cold War respite : the Geneva Summit of 1955( Book )

7 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Cold War Respite twelve scholars writing from several national perspectives investigate in riveting detail how that event - examined only in passing until now - came about, why its "spirit" was so short-lived, and what its subsequent impact was on the development of the cold war. Making use of newly declassified archives in the United States, France, Britain, and Russia, the authors provide some of the latest research and insights into early cold-war history as they track the crucial period from Stalin's death in 1953 until the summit. They consider John Foster Dulles's policy at Geneva and the meeting of the four foreign ministers that followed the summit."--Jacket
