9781849043281: America and Britain
Rezension:

'In this provocative little polemic [...] the case Arnold makes is one that every British government in modern times has recoiled from answering with the seriousness it deserves. ... A robust study.' - Max Hastings, Sunday Times 'While the perceived loss of British sovereignty in the European Union creates violent debate, an unacknowledged transfer of power across the Atlantic is overlooked in silence. Guy Arnold meticulously unpicks an unequal "special relationship" for which the political establishment offers no referendum.' - Richard Bourne, Senior Research Fellow, Institute of Commonwealth Studies and Secretary, Ramphal Institute, London 'Guy Arnold amazes me, as a fellow author, by the range of books he undertakes. From cheery critiques of boys' historical adventure novels, he wades into modern day controversy - immigration, for instance - and brings fresh light into the complexities of post-colonial Africa. Now he examines a building-block of this last century usually ignored or dismissed: the special relationship that Churchill and Roosevelt forged between Britain and the United States. Not a club like Europe, nor an association based mostly on history or language, like the Commonwealth, what's its magic? Will the strains over Syria and Iraq damage it (as Suez did), the new magnetism of China or Brazil tug it apart? As usual, this prolific author and lecturer produces his own lively views.' - Clyde Sanger, long-time journalist and international affairs
