Britain, Italy, and the origins of the Cold War by Effie G. H Pedaliu( Book )

13 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume analyses the British Labour government's contribution to the postwar reconstruction of Italy. It looks at Britain's role in Italian political processes in the immediate postwar period. It examines Britain's policies with regard to issues of Italian war criminality, the rebuilding of the Italian armed forces and the nature of Italy's institutional role within Western security arrangements and on Europe's new integrative bodies. Britain's policy towards Italy was influenced by power politics, the desire to frustrate Soviet and PCI design and to maintain its Great Power status. But throughout, it was underpinned by ideological considerations that aspired to export the principles of British social democracy. The aim was to provide Italy with an alternative model of political, economic and social development to that held out by either the USA or the USSR but, in the face of an intensifying Cold War, the Attlee government was to fail to achieve all of its goals."--Jacket
The Foreign Office, commerce and British foreign policy in the twentieth century by John Fisher( )

8 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and German and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Addresses the interface of the British Foreign Office, foreign policy and commerce in the twentieth century. Two related questions are considered: what did the Foreign Office do to support British commerce, and how did commerce influence British foreign policy? The editors of this work collect a range of case studies that explore the attitude of the Foreign Office towards commerce and trade promotion, against the backdrop of a century of relative economic decline, while also considering the role of British diplomats in creating markets and supporting UK firms
The Greek junta and the international system : a case study of southern European dictatorships, 1967-74 by Antōnios V Klapsēs( )

6 editions published between 2020 and 2021 in English and held by 97 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the international dimensions of the Greek military dictatorship of 1967-74 and uses it as a case study to evaluate the major shifts occurring in the international system during a period of rapid change. The policies of the major nation-states in both East and West were determined by realistic Cold War considerations. At the same time, the Greek junta, a profoundly anti-modernist force, failed to cope with an evolving international agenda and moves towards international cooperation. Denouncing it became a rallying point both for international organizations and for human rights activists, and it enabled the EEC to underscore the notion that democracy was an integral characteristic of the European identity. This volume is an original in-depth study of an under-researched subject and the multiple interactions of a complex era. It is divided into three sections: Part I deals with the interaction of the Colonels with state actors; Part II deals with the responses of international organizations and the rising transnational human rights agenda for which the Greek junta became a totemic rallying point; Part III compares and contrasts the transitions to democracy in Southern Europe, and analyses the different models of transition, region building and how they intersected with attempts to foster a European identity. The Greek dictatorship may have been a parochial military regime, but its rise and fall interacted with significant international trends and can therefore serve as a salient case study for promoting a better understanding of international and European trends during the 1960s and 1970s. This book will be of much interest to students of Cold War studies, international history, foreign policy, transatlantic relations and International Relations, in general."
