"Simon (international history, Univ. of Hull) analyzes the Anglo-American special relationship as it relates to Middle East policy by both nations, and concludes that the allies often relied on assumptions that created difficulties between them. [...]Simon encourages readers to reassess the Anglo-American special relationship, challenging the presumption of clear communication and coordinated policy. Summing Up: Highly recommended." Choice
