Inder (history, Oxford U.) argues that the differences, and sometimes conflicts, that arose between Britain and the US regarding India, Pakistan, and Indonesia after World War II, reflect the tension between their common goal of foiling communism and the desire to defend their individual global interests. She examines the two country's relationship in the context of the British realization that they were no longer a major power, and that they would henceforth have to depend on their knowledge and charm to make their way in the world.
