Abstract:

During the course of the eighteenth century Britain's status as a major maritime and commercial power steadily grew, and helped shape the global political, economic and military situation. Rather than offering a familiar narrative of Britain's eighteenth-century foreign policy, this book instead focuses upon how this policy was debated and viewed by British society. By probing the problems and issues surrounding the need to define and discuss Britain's foreign policy in public contexts, this book offers a fascinating insight into questions of perceived national interest, and how this developed.
