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. There was, he argues, no inevitability about this response to the post 9/11 international situation and its longer term rationale and prospects still remain in doubt.
