This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume, which is about the evolution of the Labour Party in Great Britain from the twentieth century to the beginning of the new millennium. This volume aims to construct a framework through which Labour's foreign policy and its outlook on the world can be analysed and interpreted. It also explores the many battles over Labour's foreign policy brought about by the tension between national sovereignty and internationalism.
