Overview

Consisting of four illuminating case studies, Separate Agendas examines different aspects of the relationship between Winston Churchill's government and the Eisenhower administration in the years before the Suez crisis. By exploring Anglo-American relations in Europe, the Middle East, and East Asia, Daniel C. Williamson provides a detailed analysis of four distinct issues while at the same time offering more general conclusions about Britain's role in the world. In demonstrating how Britain was able to pursue foreign policy goals that were at odds with American wishes as well as exert influence on American diplomatic actions, Separate Agendas sheds new light on the extent of Britain's continued importance as a world power. This book will be valuable reading for scholars of Anglo-American relations, the early Cold War, and the post-war British Empire.
