    Anglo-French Relations in the Twentieth Century is a collection of studies on the key episodes of the difficult and often discordant Anglo-French exchange over the past century. The authors critically re-evaluate: * the role of Spain in Anglo-French relations up to 1918
    * the missed opportunity of the 1920s with the failure of France and Britain to find sufficient common ground and co-operation
    * the short-lived Anglo-French alliance and the Second World War
    * the degree of Anglo-French Imperial co-operation
    * the Suez Crisis
    * British and French policies on European Integration.
