John Bull Gets Tough An Essay In Interpretation by S F Ferguson 1944 for sale John Bull Gets Tough: An Essay In Interpretation -by- S F Ferguson. The collapse of Great Britain and the Empire has been loudly prophesied for centuries, but John Bull refuses to budge; the end of every fight finds him still on his feet, with his family beside him; the author, an Australian, explodes the myth of grasping Imperialism, and makes clear the sane and solid foundations of the British Commonwealth; he explains the differences between John Bull and Uncle Sam, and their essential and indestructible brotherhood; he exposes the absurdity of the notion that a friend of Russia should be an enemy of Britain; above all, he tells us the deathless story of how Britain won through against incredible odds in the early years of WWII.

Losing The Blanket Australia and The End of Britain's Empire David Goldsworthy ISBN 0522850286 
for sale Losing The Blanket: Australia and The End of Britain's Empire -by- David Goldsworthy. ISBN 0522850286. Australian History. Australian Political History. When Britain's sprawling empire wound down with unexpected speed in the 1960s, Australia lost a comforting "security blanket" and had to struggle to re-establish and protect itself in a volatile and threatening world. This book shows how Australia's foreign policy during the 1950s and 1960s was affected by the end of empire. Documents now available reveal the effects of post-imperialism upon Australian policies in key areas such as defence planning in Southeast Asia, the politics of the Commonwealth, the European Union, Australia's own colonial policy and relations with Britain itself; as Menzies and then Holt looked to protect Australia's interests, the groundwork was laid for Australia's involvement in Vietnam and for the pattern of Australia's foreign relations today. Used softcover book. 209 pages. (Melbourne University Press. Melbourne. 2002) In fine condition.
