Show Summary Details


The central argument of this book is that British foreign policy has been decisively shaped by the worldview and leadership style of Tony Blair during his time in office. Simply put, it argues that a convincing explanation of British foreign policy from 1997 to 2007 must take full account of the personality of Tony Blair. The book seeks to answer three crucial questions: What was Blair's foreign policy style and worldview? What difference did the Blair style make to British foreign policy choices during this period? What difference did Blair make to the outcome of events and the policies of others, especially the United States? An overview of the subsequent chapters is also presented.
