5.0 out of 5 stars Explores the Anglo-American hegemon with deep insight., 11 July 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Cousins' Wars: Religion, Politics, Civil Warfare and the Triumph of Anglo-America (Hardcover)
As someone whose own ancestors include John Harvard and other puritans, I was naturally attracted to this book. It was good to see how many American customers also perceive the enormous strength of what is still the most powerful 'empire' in history, Anglo-America. Although Britain has no formal Empire, and instead possesses a Commonwealth, she provides the entry point for the US in most parts of the world, whether overseas territories, Europe, or the Middle East. As Ray Seitz, former US ambassador to Britain stated, Britain is the US'strategic outpost and the US is Britain's strategic hinterland. Britain is an island and the US is on an island continent. Both are still vital to each other. US media does not project English language culture alone. Britain still possesses one of the two pillars of world media and finance/business, that is the City of London. The other is obviously New York.
A very good book which I am glad was well received on both sides of the Atlantic.
