Anglo-American Relations : Contemporary Perspectives, Hardback Book

Anglo-American Relations : Contemporary Perspectives Hardback

Edited by Steve Marsh, Alan P. Dobson


This book provides an examination of contemporary Anglo-American relations.

Sometimes controversially referred to as the Special Relationship, Anglo-American relations constitute arguably the most important bilateral relationship of modern times.

However, in recent years, there have been frequent pronouncements that this relationship has lost its `specialness'. This volume brings together experts from Britain, Europe and North America in a long-overdue examination of contemporary Anglo-American relations that paints a somewhat different picture.

The discussion ranges widely, from an analysis of the special relationship of culture and friendship, to an examination of both traditional (e.g. nuclear relations) and more recent (e.g. environment) policies. Contemporary developments are discussed in the context of longer-term trends and contributing authors draw upon a range of different disciplines, including political science, diplomacy studies, business studies and economics.

Coupled with a substantive introduction and conclusion, the result is an insightful and engaging portrayal of the complex Anglo-American relationship. The book will be of great interest to students of US and UK foreign policy, diplomacy and international relations in general.
