Britain and the Last Tsar


Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the Anglo-Russian Convention, which was the culmination of continuous British attempts to come to a diplomatic understanding with Russia. The shock of defeat in the Russo-Japanese War led to a complete reassessment of Russian foreign policy, a move personified by Izvolskii as foreign minister. Given Russian weaknesses, a policy of recueillement was necessary. Russia mended her diplomatic fences comprehensively. In addition to negotiating the Anglo-Russian Convention, Russia restored good relations with Japan and tightened her relationship with France.
