A Special Relationship?

British Foreign Policy in the Era of American Hegemony

Simon Tate

Published by Manchester University Press

  • Provides students with a unique post-War history of the special relationship, setting contemporary events into their historical context
  • Provides students with an interesting discussion of the different theoretical approaches to the idea of hegemony in the post-War world order
  • Provides valuable new insights into why the British government felt it must participate in the war in Iraq and questions anew why its foreign policy was unsuccessful
  • Questions the future of the special relationship, arguing for a de-centering of its importance in British foreign policy to avoid a repeat of the Iraq war mistakes
