9780415119429: Anglo-American Relations in the Twentieth Century: The Policy and Diplomacy of Friendly Superpowers

The relationship between Britain and America has been the most important bilateral relationship the world has ever seen. Dobson's concise and readable book covers the whole of this century and employs selected historical detail to expose the special relationship in its true light and in all its complexity.
Dobson rejects tha claim that the US was ever hegemonical. Its realtionship with Britain - over the Suez Crisis and Iran in the 1960s and grenada in 1983 - clearly demonstrates that it had to bargain and did not always get its way. However, the two nations co-operated in every major crisis from the Great to the Gulf war, and together promoted liberal democracy and capitalism. The story reveals both more interdependence and conflict than has been recognised in the past.
Nuclear, intelligence defence and other links betwen the USA and Britain continue to this day, but the importance of the `special relationship' has diminished for both countries. Have common interests disappeard to an extent that the scope for bilateral cooperation has diminished to insignificince ? It is in addressing this question that Dobson draws his conclusions. Coverning defence, economic, political and personal aspects of Anglo-US realtions, this book will be indispensible for students of twentieth century American and British history and international relations.

Review:

Alan P. Dobson has written a lucid survey of Anglo-American relations during the era of the so-called special relationship.
Journal of American History

It is perceptive and engaging, and the author has a cultivated knowledge of Anglo-American relations during the twentieth century.
Journal of American History, 6/97

Alan Dobson has written a lucid, comprehensive analysis of Anglo American relations in the twentieth century which fills an important gap in the historical literature on the `special relationship'.
–Peter G. Boyle, University of Nottingham
