Sendes vanligvis innen 5-15 dager
The 'Special Relationship' has long been a leading feature of ties between the USA and Britain, but never has it been more topical than now, following wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. 'Brothers Across the Ocean' is a unique and revealing investigation into this relationship's early history, vital to understanding its current incarnations, focusing on the period when Britain's role as a leading global power began to be rivalled - possibly eclipsed - by the rising star of the USA. Iestyn Adams shows how Anglo-American diplomacy operated across the world, from South America to Hawaii, from Canada to the Far East, and how the stage was set for a relationship that has endured into the 21st century. This insightful study is a valuable resource for scholars of Modern History and International Relations.
