Kuwait and liberal interventionism

This : Presentation 11 (1) is the slideshow from our class on liberal interventionism, including the UK’s involvement in Kuwait and Sierra Leone.

Tony Blair came to dominate and shape foreign policy making as much as Thatcher had during her own premiership. His own account is readable enough, but a book by John Kampfner published not long after the 2003 invasion gives a really engaging (and sometimes devastating) account of how British forces came to be involved in Africa, Kosovo and the Middle East after 1997. It’s a great read.
