Surely it could be retorted, Britain did play a role in shaping the European international order, not least though its provision of a stable currency through the sterling-gold standard?Preferring a ‘blue water strategy’ and holding a strong navy rather than army may have enabled it to carry on its imperial policies away from Europe, but it fundamentally undermined its ability to police the mainland of Europe – the necessary precondition for performing the role of world policeman.Moreover, France took a particularly prominent role in promoting European free trade.The picture of a British hegemon playing a central role in pushing states is inaccurate; states were pulled perhaps mainly by domestic considerations.Britain chose not to pursue ...
