Six Moments of Crisis

Inside British Foreign Policy

Gill Bennett

  • The inside story of six crucial British foreign policy challenges since the Second World War - from the Korean War to the Falklands crisis
  • A book that lifts the lid on the making of British foreign policy - and on decisions that still arouse controversy to this day
  • Reveals each decision in a way that has never been done before - telling the story from the inside out and without hindsight
  • Shows not just why these crucial decisions were taken but offers a privileged glimpse into how history is actually made
