The Embassy in Grosvenor Square : American ambassadors to the United Kingdom, 1938-2008 by Alison Holmes ( Book )
5 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Leading scholars explore the role played by the American Embassy in London and the US Ambassador to the Court of St James's, not only in bilateral UK-US relations, but also in wider international issues over the years the Embassy has been in Grosvenor Square. This volume covers the period from 1938 to 2008, effectively the lifespan of what has often been termed 'the special relationship', from its birth in the Second World War, through the challenges of the Cold War to the present day. Debates about the 'specialness' of the relationship in the post-war context are key, as are discussions about the impact of the development and demise of the 'Cold War', the ongoing impact of European integration, the influence of nuclear weapons and NATO, and wider economic, cultural, demographic and environmental forces that have shaped the transatlantic relationship to arguably form the basis of a new model of 'transatlantic diplomacy'

Diplomats at war. The American experience ( Book )
3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The November 2010 publication of over 250,000 classified U.S. diplomatic cables by the Wikileaks organisation put the spotlight of the world's attention on American diplomats. Beyond various sensationalist headlines, perhaps the most remarkable insight these releases provide is the tale of diligent, thoughtful and professional diplomats from the United States and other nations conducting the bidding of their governments; diplomacy, often in times of acute crisis brought on by war. The forebears of those currently assigned to Kabul and Baghdad, and London and Beijing, have an equally compelling tale to tell. In 'Diplomatic Investigations' (1966) British historian Herbert Butterfield sagely remarked that "Diplomacy may include anything short of actual war, therefore, and sometimes the kindest thing that one can say of it is that it is better than having the guns actually firing." 0Also part of series: History of International Relations Library; 36
