In the modern era, British thinkers have made significant – indeed perhaps even disproportionate – contributions to our understanding of the workings of international relations. This book brings together eleven original essays by an inter-disciplinary team of historians, political theorists and international relations specialists that reconsider some of those contributions and their legacies. It aims to provide new insights into the work of thinkers from Thomas Hobbes and Edmund Burke to Goldsworthy Lowes and Lewis Namier as well as to advance the study of the history of international thought.
