The ""Special Relationship"" has long been a leading feature of the international relations between the USA and Britain, and never more discussed and questioned than now, following the Iraq War. But Brothers Across the Ocean is a unique examination into the relationship's early history, when Britain's role as a leading global power was beginning to be rivaled -- possibly eclipsed -- by the USA. Based on detailed examination of official and private papers, Iestyn Adams's research shows how Anglo-American diplomacy operated in such diverse regions as South America, Canada -- especially the Newfoundland disputes -- Hawaii, and, vitally, in the Far East. Here is the leading example of Anglo-American cooperation following the Russo-Japanese War -- a conflict of global importance -- setting the stage for Anglo-American cooperation throughout the twentieth century and beyond.

Iestyn Adams is a specialist in the history of Anglo-American relations and carried out his research in the School of History at the University of Leeds.
'Iestyn Adams's work is a timely and scholarly work of history that reveals the complex and chaotic nature of the state of international relations... Adams's study is not just a simple diplomatic history. Issues of economics, prestige, balance of power, and political culture are woven into a tightly focused and readable study that highlights just how sophisticated this "special relationship" was and how it varied from relations with other powers for both English-speaking nations. The research is extensive, based on archival materials that include a solid array of private papers, departmental papers, and published sources on both sides of the Atlantic. As a model for students interested in how to come to grips with the intricacies of the "special relationship" it will have great value. As for trying to answer the questions of when that relationship became special, if it was, and why, other scholars who now approach the topic will have to acknowledge the contribution of this study.' - Professor Greg Kennedy, Defence Studies Department, King's College London; 'This book provides a highly readable and authoritative account of a crucial period in relations between Britain and the United States. It makes a valuable contribution to our understanding of how exactly the transformation in those relations was achieved.' - Professor Andrew Gamble, Head of Department of Politics and International Studies, University of Cambridge
