LSE Review of Books
(24 Aug 2012)
The period immediately after World War II was a vital one for diplomatic relations and, with the Soviet Union emerging as a new superpower, it was particularly important for Britain’s relations with America. Britain and America After World War II is the first book to focus on the role of the British Embassy in Washington during this period. John Dumbrell finds the book is a model of intelligent and conscientious diplomatic historical research.
Britain and America after World War II: Bilateral Relations and the Beginnings of the Cold War. By Richard Wevill. I. B. Tauris. May 2012.
