'Despite everything, the contemporary world order remains Anglo-American - and it is likely to stay that way. In this major new book James Cronin shows why this is so, combining a mastery of historical detail with an understanding of how geopolitics and political economy shape world politics. It is an absorbing read.' - Andrew Gamble, author of The Spectre at the Feast: Capitalist Crisis and the Politics of Recession--Andrew Gamble
'A perceptive analysis and account of one of the critical relationships in international relations. Elegantly written, thoroughly researched, and persuasively argued, this is an essential read for anyone interested in the dynamics of the Anglo-American relationship and more broadly the working of the international system.' - Erik Goldstein, author of The First World War's Peace Settlements: International Relations, 1918-1925
"A deeply researched and lucid history of the period between the Vietnam War and the present day."?Foreign Affairs--Foreign Affairs
"The thesis is solid, refreshing and holds water. It is an extremely competent work... While much of the material presented here is not new to specialists, it is, as far as I am aware, the first time it has been presented in as lucid and cogent manner as this."--Tore T. Petersen, American Historical Review-- (12/01/2015)
