About the Author

T. G. Otte is Lecturer in Diplomatic History at the University of East Anglia and has published widely in the fields of diplomatic and international history


A superb account... scholarly, fascinating and engagingly written. Andrew Roberts, Evening Standard 'Books of the Year' [A] lucid, thoughtful and challenging book... clear eyed in its objectives and realistic in its aims. It has an excellent grasp of the existing work on the area and of the gaps in the present coverage. It is deeply and impressively researched, and beautifully referenced. Denis Judd, TLS What is intriguing about this argument is not only the force with which Otte makes it, but his unapologetic empiricism that maintains an intense focus on the foreign relations archive and the private papers of the British foreign policy elite. James L. Hevia, Reviews in History
