In the comprehensively revised and updated new edition of this highly-acclaimed text, John Dumbrell assesses how and why the Anglo-American special relationship found a new lease of life under Blair as Britain repeatedly 'chose' the US in its evolving foreign policy orientation rather than Europe.

Reviews

'[A] highly readable, stimulating and thought-provoking analysis... It should be widely read' - Ann Lane, Argentia

'[A] worthy successor to an already excellent first edition. Dumbrell's scholarship is wide-ranging, meticulous and clearly laid out [and] the plaudits for the first edition will undoubtedly be extended to this one too' - Andrew Williams, Argentia
