In his groundbreaking book The British Way in Warfare (Routledge, 1990), David French outlined the skillful combination of maritime, economic and diplomatic power employed by Britain to achieve its international goals. Almost two-decades later, this collection offers a reassessment of French’s thesis, using it as a lens through which to explore Britain’s relationship with various kinds of power (military and civil) and how this was employed across the globe. In particular, each essay addresses the ways in which the use of power manifested itself in the maintenance of Britain’s place within the international system between 1856 and 1956.
