An editor at BBC-TV takes a witty and honest look at the "special" relationship between the US and the UK.Britain and America no longer see their relationship as merely "special"; they have a new word to describe it: "essential." Justin Webb would prefer all adjectives to be abandoned in an effort to tell the real story. As the BBC's former North American editor for eight years, Webb is perfectly placed to comment on the relationship between these two great nations, and he identifies a fault line in the long-standing marriage between them-a cultural divide that separates us. Furthermore, he argues that recognizing this divide, even celebrating it, is the key to a rich future collaboration. An amusing, myth-breaking, unflinchingly honest read, Cheers, America is not an attack on either the English or the Americans. It is a wry account of the transatlantic friendship as it actually exists-and the surprising lessons we can still learn from each other.
