Description

While retaining the basic argument that Britain went to war in 1914 not as a result of internal pressures but as a response to external events, Steiner and Neilson reject recent arguments that Britain became involved because of fears of an 'invented' German menace, or to defend her Empire.

Revisiting Britain's Road to the First World War. This book is a revision of Cambridge historian Zara Steiner's 1977 . This book is a revision of Cambridge historian Zara Steiner's 1977 work of the same name. With the assistance of the Royal Military College of Canada's Keith Neilson, Palgrave has published a worthy successor. Steiner and Neilson have done an excellent job of laying out all the contesting forces that combined to set the stage for Britain's decision to go to war. The book's greatest strength is an in-depth analysis of the competing economic, political, and social factors that shaped pre-War Britain.

This noted scholar Professor Keith Hancock who pre-war had begun the task of recording the Survey's assessment of the British Empire's progress, believed it to be an 'immense addition to organized knowledge' which explained fully the British Commonwealth's evolution. The story told was on a colossal scale drawn from Mansergh's wide pre-war academic studies, supplemented by his own wartime experiences. 17 The latter was actually a Dominion, Britain's oldest colony, and a member of the original club.

Britain and Russia were the most important players in European politics for most of the nineteenth century. 140 To make his point, he examined British policy before August 1914, when the government of the day did not make clear because of domestic political pressures whether Britain would intervene in Europe if war broke out between the Triple Alliance and the Dual Entente.

How and why did Britain become involved in the First World War? Taking into account the scholarship of the last twenty-five years, this second edition of Zara S. Steiner's classic study, thoroughly revised with Keith Neilson, explores a subject which is as highly contentious as ever.While retaining the basic argument that Britain went to war in 1914 not as a result of internal pressures but as a response to external events, Steiner and Neilson reject recent arguments that Britain became involved because of fears of an 'invented' German menace, or to defend her Empire. Instead, placing greater emphasis than before on the role of Russia, the authors convincingly argue that Britain entered the war in order to preserve the European balance of power and the nation's favourable position within it.Lucid and comprehensive, Britain and the Origins of the First World War brings together the bureaucratic, diplomatic, economic, strategical and ideological factors that led to Britain's entry into the Great War, and remains the most complete survey of the pre-war situation.
