The Imperial Premiership

The Role of the Modern Prime Minister in Foreign Policy Making, 1964-2015

Sam Goodman

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Highly topical given the recent votes on the question of expanding military airstrikes against ISIS from Iraq to encompass Syria as well.
  • Contains first-hand interviews with former foreign secretaries, cabinet ministers, party officials, senior civil servants, military chiefs and diplomats.
  • Focuses on a subject very little literature has been written on to offer breadth (a fifty year period) and depth (assessing the individual premierships and foreign policy decisions).
  • Lord David Owen has written an extensive foreword for the book offering his thoughts and unique insight on the subject, together with topical commentary on recent foreign policy decisions and the Chilcot Inquiry.
