This lively and engaging cultural history explores a series of interrelated questions about the U.S.'s influence on British society in the years following World War II. How was American culture disseminated into Britain? Why did large sections of British society embrace American customs? What picture did British citizens form of American society and politics? And how did the Cold War's end and the September 11 attacks affect that picture? Here, author John F. Lyons draws on cinema, literature, contemporary journalism, unpublished oral interviews, and a host of other sources to explore not only the ways in which American society impacted Britain, but the ways in which America's complex identity was refracted in the minds of the citizens of its closest ally.
