In the Nazi Era


The present volume is a continuation of my work on prewar diplomacy, of which the first two instalments appeared in Diplomatic Prelude, 1938-1939, and in Europe in Decay, 1936-1940; it is probably also the last instalment, at least for some time to come. During the past ten years I devoted a good part of my leisure to this work but I always meant ultimately to return to my own chosen field of British Parliamentary history. In February 1951, H.M. Government announced their decision to give financial support to a History of Parliament; and having been put in charge of the modern period, covering the 18th and 19th centuries, I must eschew other work, at least till my main task within the field assigned to me is completed. I have, therefore, for the time being, to take leave of pre-war diplomatic history and my readers in that province.

I have to thank the editors and owners of The Times Literary Supplement, History Today, The Listener, the Manchester Guardian, and the National Review for permission to reprint essays, or parts of essays, which appeared in their columns.
