schema:description"US and British leaders successfully applied techniques of caution and cooperation to defuse occasional crises even before they managed to avoid a military clash in the 1860s. Myers bases his thesis primarily on evidence from diplomatic archives; he seems to have consulted the private papers of all the key leaders involved. Although admirable, this leaves out a good deal. It is significant, for example, that the book's index contains no references for Ireland or for Irish people on either side of the Atlantic. By contrast, Campbell's books have a wider scope.

Whereas Campbell characterizes the antebellum period as one of latent hostility between the two nations, arising from resentments from the War of 1812 and ongoing border disputes, Myers sees an emerging rapprochement based on shared liberal principles."@en
