Abstract : The central theme of the study was the unwelcome and perhaps inevitable review by Britain of her role in the world brought on by the rising costs of being a world power, economic difficulties at home, the emergence to independence of most segments of the Empire, and the increased importance of Western Europe in British security measures and policies. The facts of scaling down and realigning of military forces along with the official interpretations thereof were studied in the Defense Estimates. The nuances and variances in the legislative aspects of changing the British role were gleaned from the Parliamentary Debates. (Modified author abstract)
