Several of the papers concentrate on the conduct of diplomacy, others on the struggles to influence policy, and collectively they offer insights into Britain's policy goals, the working of the international system and the development of the British state at this period. The battles to influence policy offer particularly valuable insights into the nature of the state. This is a book that will be of considerable interest value to both scholars and students of late seventeenth- and eighteenth-century history.
