Description - Britain and the Origins of the First World War by Zara S. Steiner
Taking into account scholarship since 1980, this new edition rejects recent arguments that Britain went to war out of either weakness, fear of an "invented" German menace or fears for the Empire. Instead, while placing greater emphasis than before on the role of Russia, Zara S. Steiner and Keith Neilson maintain the view that Britain was forced into the war in order to preserve the European balance of power and Britain's favourable position within it.
