'The Makers of British Foreign Policy is a rich collection of essays of unusually high quality on Britain's chief foreign policy-makers, from the elder Pitt to Lady Thatcher...These studies can be read as case histories in the rise and decline of British power, revealing a far more irregular process of change than is so often assumed...This book is well worth reading. The essays are varied and always thought-provoking.' - Zara Steiner, Times Literary Supplement
