David Reynolds’s concept of ‘competitive cooperation’, advanced in his book The Creation of the Anglo-American Alliance: A Study in Competitive Cooperation, 1937–1941, has been highly influential in the historiography of contemporary international history. During his career Reynolds has enriched and developed the concept, pushing the bounds of the discipline to encompass insights from cultural and social history. He has also advanced well beyond his original Anglo-American focus, engaging with Russian and other European scholars to provide a broader and deeper understanding of both the Second World War and the Cold War era. He has proven himself similarly versatile in conveying insights reaped from the archives to a broader audience beyond academia through the mediums of television and radio. His work provides a model for what can be achieved through the fully rounded study of international history.
