Summary
"Leading scholars explore the role played by the American Embassy in London and the US Ambassador to the Court of St James's, not only in bilateral UK-US relations, but also in wider international issues over the years the Embassy has been in Grosvenor Square. This volume covers the period from 1938 to 2008, effectively the lifespan of what has often been termed 'the special relationship', from its birth in the Second World War, through the challenges of the Cold War to the present day. Debates about the 'specialness' of the relationship in the post-war context are key, as are discussions about the impact of the development and demise of the 'Cold War', the ongoing impact of European integration, the influence of nuclear weapons and NATO, and wider economic, cultural, demographic and environmental forces that have shaped the transatlantic relationship to arguably form the basis of a new model of 'transatlantic diplomacy'"--provided by publisher
