Volume 17 in the established series of the "Prince Albert Studies" contains 15 essays and an introductory chapter, reflecting the themes and contents of a lecture programme held at the University of Munich from 1996 to 1999. Eminent scholars from the United Kingdom, all historians from leading British Universities, engaged in "An Anglo-German Dialogue" in the presentation and discussion of their lectures. These lectures provide a panoramic view of British foreign relations over the last 150 years. Paying particular attention to the Anglo-German dimension, the focus moves from the British attitude to the 1848 revolutions, to Kaiser Wilhelm II's relationship to England, right through to the policies of Margaret Thatcher and Tony Blair towards Germany and Europe. In the first part aspects of British policy towards Germany and Europe in the mid and late nineteenth century are examined, while in the second part the focus is on the role of monarchs in the foreign policy. The third section deals with the nuances of British reactions to various aspects of German attitudes and policies from Gustav Stresemann's concept of international relations. The fourth part has as its theme the contradictions and tensions in Britain's retreat from the world stage. The final section, in examining Britain and Europe since the end of the Second World War, brings the story right up to date, including analysis of both the Labour and Conservative parties' policies towards Europe.
