The Illustrated History
The Foreign & Commonwealth Office is one of Britain's most famous institutions. Dr Anthony Seldon tells the history of his world-famous institution, and takes us on a guided tour of the building. 'The Foreign Office' boasts 200 exclusive photographs of the interiors specially commissioned from a leading architectural photographer. The story of the Foreign Office is inextricably linked to that of the rise and fall of the British Empire. Anthony Seldon focuses particularly on relations with India, and this is complemented by fascinating archive material from the India Office at the British Library.
