A Special Relationship: Anglo-American Relations from the Cold War to Iraq

Front Cover
Bloomsbury Publishing, Jan 1, 2006 - Political Science - 329 pages
Assesses 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. This book argues that there was no inevitability about this response to the post 9/11 international situation and its longer term prospects remain in doubt.
