Meddling in Middle Europe: Britain and the 'Lands Between, 1919-1925
"This work is the first study of British policy towards Hungary, Czechoslovakia and Poland following the creation of nation states in Central Europe at the end of the First World War. The author argues that the powers of Europe reverted to old, pre-war, forms of diplomacy to tackle the absence of trust in the new political settlement. Yet, these traditional channels had become discredited, which led to novel ways of conducting international relations through central bankers and 'loan diplomacy'. Consequently, British influence in the region was exerted mainly in the form of financial undertakings, which also accorded with the British perception of their own interests in Central Europe."--BOOK JACKET.
