Britain and the Problem of International Disarmament by Carolyn J. Kitching

Book Description

In the aftermath of the Great War, multilateral disarmament was placed at the top of the international agenda by the Treaty of Versailles and the Covenant of the League of Nations. This book analyzes the naval, air and land disarmament policies of successive British governments from 1919 to 1934, articulating their dilemma either to fulfil their obligations or to avoid them. Daring and controversial, the present study challenges the hitherto accepted view that Britain occupied the high moral ground by drastically reducing its armaments and argues that, during this period, British disarmament policy was reactive and generally failed to provide the leadership that this extremely sensitive time in international politics demanded.

Britain and the Geneva Disarmament Conference by Carolyn J. Kitching Britain and the Geneva Disarmament Conference, Hardback (December 2002)

At the Geneva Disarmament Conference, Britain was arguably the only Power capable of mediating between conflicting French and German demands over the Treaty's disarmament clauses. This analysis reveals that the traditional interpretation of British policy at the conference needs to be revised.
