520    Why is France so often relegated to the background in 
       studies of international relations? This book seeks to 
       redress this balance, exploring the relationship between 
       the United States, United Kingdom and France, and its 
       wider impact on the theory and practice of international 
       relations.|bWhy is France so often neglected in the study 
       of international relations? This book seeks to redress 
       this balance, providing an in-depth insight into the 
       relationship between the two Anglo-Saxon Powers, the 
       United States (USA) and the United Kingdom (UK), and 
       France from 1900 to the Fall of France in 1940.  Drawing 
       on a range of sources and archival material, Williams 
       links the evolution of this complex relationship to the 
       parallel evolution of the study and practice of 
       international relations and suggests that the Anglo-Saxon 
       bias within international relations has obscured the vital
       contribution made by France to our thinking about the 
       subject. The differing reaction in France, the UK and the 
       USA over the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq shows just how 
       contemporary a topic this is, and its continued relevance 
       to global politics 
520 1  This fascinating volume asks important questions about the
       development of International Relations as a field of study
       since the early twentieth century, focusing on the three 
       main Western democracies - America, Britain and France. It
       is to be particularly welcomed for the way in which it 
       fuses a profound understanding of both History and 
       International Relations, showing that 'IR' itself has a 
       history - one that was largely shaped by changing global 
       realities.' - John W. Young, University of Nottingham, UK 
       'A very original piece of research about three crocodiles 
       living in the same swamp, where friendship, distrust and 
       rivalry are a daily routine. This fascinating story is 
       recounted by Andrew Williams who combines his talents of 
       historian, political scientist and IR scholar to good 
       effect.' - Bertrand Badie, Institut d'Etudes Politiques de
       Paris (Sciences Po), France 'By bringing France back into 
       the story of the West as political project, Williams makes
       a seminal contribution to the study of transatlantic 
       security relations, one that will be welcomed not only by 
       his fellow diplomatic historians, but also by political 
       scientists and others with an interest in international 
       relations theory and foreign policy analysis. - David 
       Haglund, Queen's University, Canada 'Williams offers a 
       much-needed corrective to the assumption that French 
       economic, political and strategic ideas had little or no 
       influence on modern IR theory and practice, he also 
       provides a new lens through which we can gain a greater 
       understanding of the deeper intellectual currents that 
       helped shape and define the twentieth century world.' - 
       David B. Woolner, the Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt 
       Institute, and co-editor of FDR's World: War Peace and 
       Legacies (Palgrave Macmillan, 2008) Andrew Williams has 
       written an important and illuminating study of the trans-
       Atlantic intellectual currents that have shaped 
       contemporary theorising about the nature of international 
       politics. Blending the history and theory effortlessly, he
       has demonstrated that French political philosophy played a
       fundamental role in both the origins and evolution of 
       international thought in the West. Williams provides a 
       challenging new perspective on both the history of Franco-
       British-American relations and the emergence of 
       international relations as a distinct discipline. - Peter 
       Jackson, University of Glasgow, UK
