A rather significant contribution to the study of how foreign policy is made. The book is based upon the papers of Lord Noel-Buxton, one of the prominent Bulgarophile members of the so-called Balkan Committee, and shows how pressure could be brought upon the foreign office and how public opinion could be made. Most of the volume is devoted to a discussion of Anglo-German relations from 1904-1914, war diplomacy in the Balkans (the most important part), and various other aspects of war-time policy.
