    Kandiah Russian ambitions towards the Ottoman Empire had now reached the stage where many British policy-makers were convinced that Russia intended a dramatic southward extension of her power. After the brief interval of the Bonar Law and Baldwin governments, with the latter in effect continuing the Lloyd George line, MacDonald attempted to build upon this foundation with a full rapprochement with the Soviet Union. Lloyd George nonetheless was not convinced about the utility of force in toppling the Bolsheviks. When he failed to make progress, Morrison then adopted a characteristic approach: he used the mass media to take his message to the American people.

    He made a coast-to-coast radio broadcast in which he conjured up the vivid image that American pigs were eating better than most human beings throughout the world. Surplus wheat was being fed to farm animals in the USA. Sean Greenwood also highlights important economic considerations. Bevin had resisted moves towards integration. British decision-makers were in general agreement that communism and collectivism posed the most serious danger to both Western security and civilisation. Hopkins 3 extent to which worries about Germany persisted in preoccupying British policy-makers at a time when they were supposed to be principally concerned with the Soviet Union.

    As Ian Jackson shows, economic measures were extensively utilised as weapons in East—West confrontation. This was especially true of foreign policy. A Japanese Peace Treaty was successfully negotiated and signed in September. Its welfare policies were residual and means-tested, which were much resented by the unemployed.

Britains nuclear arms control policy in the context of Anglo-American relations, 1957-68 book

If Bevin had taken the lead in this, Morrison strongly supported him and tried to make his own contribution to fostering mutual understanding. Geo-politics even more than ideological rivalry have shaped British reactions to Russian intentions and other than during two brief periods of coalition with Russia in the two world wars, and only then in the face of a common enemy, the normal condition of Anglo—Russian relations has been one of rivalry, mutual distrust and suspicion.

Our duties and responsibilities will be very different in the future from what they have been in the past, but they will be no less onerous and no less demanding of our highest efforts.

Keep Left was the result. So, for example, between January and March he made several fervently anti-communist speeches and took action against Labour MPs not toeing the anti-communist line.

It was only when he had further talks with Anderson, who was joined by Dean Acheson, Acting Secretary of State, that a breakthrough was made. Not since the French Revolution, in their opinion, was the country so threatened by a foreign power.

Their Foreign Minister, Andrei Gromyko, put forward amendments to the Anglo—American draft treaty but he did not push them very hard. The Americans decided to help.

Taken together, the studies in this volume suggest three principal themes with regard to Britain and the Cold War.

They were disturbed when the Soviet State did not collapse as they had hoped, but instead consolidated, and they became even more alarmed when, in Moscow inthe Communist International, or Comintern, was formed. During the Second World War there had been food and raw material scarcities which had been lessened by American Lend-Lease aid.

Moreover, the Prime Minister assumed the ultimate responsibility and indeed chaired the Ministerial Committee on Iran. It was manifested in a variety of ways. Progress on nuclear disarmament was not enough; indeed, unless matched by reduction in Soviet conventional forces it would result in one-sided disarmament to the detriment of Western security.

Nevertheless, no account of Britain and the Cold War can avoid placing the Anglo—American relationship at its centre.

The British recognised the economic and strategic importance of the area as a whole and worried about the threat from the Soviet Union. In other regions there was more success. He then worked as Leader of the London County Council, — His consistent anti-communism was undoubtedly a reassurance for Americans who worried about British socialism.

Eastern Europe was a much more distant concern, and it was hoped that region would remain quiescent and not cause disturbances which might affect Western Europe.

Why this particular focus? The ideology of the Russian regime might have changed, but the threat she could pose was very similar to that of the Tsarist period.
