Cet ouvrage est consacre aux transformations de la politique etrangere et de la diplomatie britanniques dans le temps long du declin imperial, de l'integration europeenne et des relations transatlantiques. De la Royal Navy de l'amiral sir John Fisher a la politique nucleaire contemporaine, les auteurs analysent la capacite d'adaptation des pratiques internationales de la Grande-Bretagne, ses moteurs, ses limites et sa signification, a travers des cas d'etude centres sur des archives nouvellement ouvertes ou des aires parfois marginalisees. Ils demontrent l'influence des individus, le poids des reseaux, l'evolution des processus de consultation et de prise de decision, en contexte de crise comme dans la gestion quotidienne. Considerant tour a tour les echelles locales et globales, bilaterales et multilaterales, l'ouvrage offre une perspective critique sur les pratiques culturelles et les courants intellectuels qui sous-tendent la politique etrangere et la diplomatie britanniques au 20 siecle, de Bruxelles a Washington, du Canada au Pacifique, des Malouines a l'Afrique, des Nations Unies au Commonwealth des Nations. This study addresses transformations in British diplomacy and foreign policy through the long-term perspectives of imperial decline, European integration and transatlantic relations. From the Royal Navy of Admiral Sir John Fisher to contemporary nuclear policy, the authors analyse Britain's capacity to adapt its international practices, and the driving forces and constraints behind them. Using case studies based on newly available archives and including regions that tend to be marginalised, they show the influence of individuals, the importance of networks and the evolution of the consultation and decision-making processes, in contexts of both crisis and daily management. On a local, global, bilateral and multilateral scale, the book offers a critical perspective of the cultural practices and intellectual trends underlying British diplomacy and foreign policy in the 20th century, from Brussels to Washington, from the Falkland Islands to Africa, from the United Nations to the Commonwealth of Nations.
