Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Suggests that the so-called "special relationship" between America and Britain was a troubled relationship, and examines Charles de Gaulle's rise to power in France and the problems this created for the policies of Britain and the US in the late 1950s and early 1960s. Explores the evolution of Anglo-American relations, particularly after France's entry into the nuclear club in 1960, and explains the growing divergence of the British and American governments. The author is manager of strategic analysis at a private consulting firm. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
