Description

The `Special Relationship' has long been a leading feature of the international relations beteen 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 rivalled - 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 20th century and beyond.
