Synopsis

This unique volume offers an original collection of essays on the theme of America's `special relationships'. It interrogates in an original and provocative manner the distinctive character of America's interactions with an array of allies and clients, both international and domestic.











The essays vary in their focus; some are primarily historical, some are more contemporary. All consider the quality of `specialness' in the context of America's relationship with particular countries, including the United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Holland, Russia, Iran and Israel. The collection also concerns the relationship between the American state and key `special' foreign policy interests, notably ethnic lobbies and religious groups.











Bringing together a wide range of experts, this timely collection provides a valuable addition to the debates surrounding US foreign policy, and will be of great interest to students and scholars of American politics, American history and international relations.
