Summary

"Michael Turner offers a detailed examination of Britain's role and influence in the 1970s and 1980s, a time of rapid change when Britain could no longer expect to be treated as one of the 'Big Three' world powers. This book examines the key decisions, their consequences, and places British policy-making in its international context"--Provided by publisher.
