This chapter considers the record on defence and foreign affairs of James Callaghan’s government of 1976–79, arguing for a positive but not complaisant view of its policies and the government’s achievements. The contour lines around the major external and defence questions of the era were contested, and yet in the end their shape was settled with a broad consensus. Matters generally remained as they had been when Labour held office previously (under Clement Attlee, 1945–51, and Harold Wilson, 1964–70 and 1974–76).
