A special relationship : Anglo-American relations from the Cold War to Iraq.

Dumbrell, J. (2006) 'A special relationship : Anglo-American relations from the Cold War to Iraq.', Basingstoke: Palgrave Macmillan.


In the comprehensively revised and updated new edition of this highly-acclaimed text, John Dumbrell assesses how and why the Anglo-American special relationship found a new lease of life under Blair as Britain repeatedly 'chose' the US in its evolving foreign policy orientation rather than Europe. There was, he argues, no inevitability about this response to the post 9/11 international situation and its longer term rationale and prospects still remain in doubt. Contents Introduction Transatlantic Attitudes The House that Jack and Mac Built Lyndon Johnson to Jimmy Carter Reagan and George H.W. Bush After the Cold War: Clinton and George W. Bush Nuclear and Intelligence Cooperation War: Vietnam, the Falklands and the Gulf Britain, the United States and European Integration Ireland Conclusion.
