Balfour and Foreign Policy by Jason Tomes

Book Description

This is a study of the foreign policy views of Arthur James Balfour (1848-1930), British Prime Minister and Foreign Secretary, which examines his understanding of foreign relations, his perception of contemporary foreign and Imperial affairs, and his prescriptions for British policy. The book spans international thought, diplomatic history, and biography. Theory is, however, not divorced from practice, still less practice from people. In elucidating Balfour's mind, the author touches on most of the major issues of four decades of international history and some fundamental questions of international relations. Little attention has been paid hitherto to Balfour's political thought, but here he is shown as an intellectual with a deep and coherent philosophy, which led him to emphasise the importance of Anglo-American partnership in world affairs.

Albania by Jason Tomes Albania, Hardback (August 2012)

This important new edition presents Konitza's short history of Albania up to the exile of Ahmet Zogo - 'King Zog' - in 1939 together with some of Konitza's other key writings, analysing of the character of the Albanian people as well as their language, literature and religion.

Albania's Greatest Friend by Jason Tomes Albania's Greatest Friend, Hardback (May 2011)

With a Preface by Noel Malcolm. Impeccably aristocratic and eccentric in a uniquely English tradition, Aubrey Herbert was at first sight an incongruous champion of Albanian nationalism, to say the least. This title charts Herbert's involvement with Albania over the course of his life, in his own words, through his own extensive diaries and letters.

Albanian Letters by Jason Tomes Albanian Letters, Hardback (October 2008)

Explores the implications of the key political events of this period (for example, the formation of the Albanian League in 1878). This title also paints a picture of the country's complex social and cultural make-up. It looks at how Albanians' views of their homeland were affected by developments taking place at the time.

King Zog by Jason Tomes King Zog, Paperback (July 2006)

A biography of King Zog, monarch of Albania.
