Dumbrell, John (2009) 'The US-UK special relationship : taking the 21st Century temperature.', British journal of politics and international relations., 11 (1). pp. 64-78.
Although highly contested, the concept of the US–UK 'special relationship' does have real existence, primarily in the fields of defence and intelligence co-operation. The end of the premiership of Tony Blair saw the emergence of a significant public debate in the United Kingdom about the future appropriate trajectory for the relationship. This article assesses the state of the special relationship under Prime Minister Gordon Brown, placing it in the context of the wider Atlantic alliance and of perennial concerns about shared values and structural imbalances between London and Washington.
