An editor at BBC-TV takes a witty and sincere examine the “special” courting among the U.S. and the UK.


Justin Webb was once the BBC’s guy in the US. He lined politics and interviewed presidents, yet extra importantly he stated, as Alistair Cooke as soon as did, at the wealthy tapestry of yank lifestyles. this is often his toast to a rustic he known as domestic for the simplest a part of a decade.

Webb’s the United States is a spot of risk and promise. he's scornful of these who imagine the kingdom is in decline, and posits a thrilling new diplomatic period during which the United States diversifies its overseas relationships.

Cheers, the US will make you smile. Its wry and heartfelt observations supply a redeeming imaginative and prescient of our nation at a time whilst it truly is redefining its identity.
