This text considers the relationship between the Royal Navy and the US Navy during the years 1917-1919. The Royal Navy and the US Navy were largely unacquainted prior to the American entry into World War 1. Relations between the individual members of the two services in distant waters appear to have been cordial but at the highest level there was no real contact, since Britain's main concern was with the more menacing Imperial German Navy. It was the German announcement of unrestricted submarine warfare from February 1917 which ensured the two would work together, but America's involvement was gradual and uncertain until late March, and hostilities were finally declared on April 6.

The second in a projected set of five volumes dealing with Anglo America Naval Relations, this volume brings together documents from the period 1919-1939 which was dominated by a series of naval arms limitation and disarmament conferences. The book also includes a section of documents that deal with encounters of serving officers and men of the two navies and their observations on each other's navy, while the final section details the hesitant and limited steps towards co-operation during 1937-1939 when the prospect of a second world war looked increasingly likely. Drawing on a wide range of documents from British and American archives, this volume provides a fascinating overview and insight into relations between the two navies during the interwar period.

The latter half of the 18th-century saw Irish opposition movements being greatly influenced by the American and French revolutions. This is part one of a two-part, six-volume edition which illustrates the depth of this influence by publishing pamphlets dealing with the major political issues of these decades.
Volume II in the Documents on Irish Foreign Policy series concerns the establishment of the Irish Free State as a sovereign, independent state on the international stage. The opening date of the volume, 6 December 1922, marks the establishment of the Irish Free State under the 1921 Anglo-Irish Treaty. The closing date, 19 March 1926, is that of the Ultimate Financial Agreement between the Irish Free State and Britain. This volume presents the first exclusive account of the Irish government's policy towards the Boundary Commission, the relationship which was to define the border between Northern Ireland and the Republic. The first steps in the creation of the state are chronicled, including Ireland's admission to the League of Nations and the appointment of Ireland's first overseas envoy, Professor T.A. Smiddy, as Minister Plenipotentiary to the US. Volume II offers close insight into the development of Irish-American relations and the fraught negotiations surrounding the Boundary Commission and its collapse. It is indispensable to historians of Irish foreign policy and the most authoritive record compiled of Ireland's fledgling diplomatic relations. (source: Nielsen Book Data)
