NOTES

1 INTRODUCTION
1
The former is in Dick Richardson and Glyn Stone (eds) Decisions and Diplomacy, and the latter in P. Catterall and C.J. Morris (eds) Britain and the Threat to Stability in Europe, 1918-45. Other works have tackled disarmament indirectly as part of a more general study, for example Brian Bond's British Military Policy between the Two World Wars, and Brian McKercher's The Second Baldwin Government and the United States, 1924-1929.

This volume also contains articles by K. Hovi on 'Security before Disarmament, or Hegemony? The French Alliance Policy 1917-1927', and Maurice Vaïsse on 'Security and Disarmament: Problems in the Development of the Disarmament Debates 1919-1934'. Vaïsse's monumental study of French policy at the World Disarmament Conference of 1932-34, Sécurité D'Abord, should also be noted here.

For example, during the negotiations to persuade the Germans to return to the negotiating table at Geneva in the autumn of 1932, Foreign Office officials spent a considerable amount of time in drawing up possible plans and strategies in the event of these negotiations proving successful. It is not, however, feasible to include all these discussions in the present study, and in the main they merely formed part of the overall policy which emerged once the Germans had agreed to return, and which is discussed in detail herein.

For discussion on these questions, see, for example, John Underwood's study of British policy at the World Disarmament Conference.

For an analysis of Britain's early position on an Anglo-French agreement see Anne Orde, Great Britain and International Security, 1920-1926.

2 THE CONCEPT AND CONTEXT OF DISARMAMENT, 1919-34

For a detailed analysis of the disarmament versus arms control debate, see Dick Richardson, A History of Disarmament and Arms Control, Chapter 1.
