Waiting for minimum critic reviews


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.
