“This volume is a distinctive, original and refreshing approach to the study of Anglo-American relations. Each essay is not just an outstanding contribution to a stellar book, but rather each one opens the door for future scholarship.” • James Cooper, St. John University

Anglo-American Relations and the Transmission of Ideas is a tremendous collection of works focusing on the transatlantic transmission of ideas from correspondence to politics, from race and the construction of identities to law, and from the Anglosphere to empire.” • Christopher Jespersen, University of North Georgia


Too often, scholarship on Anglo-American political relations has focused on mutual social and economic interests between Britain and the United States as the basis for cooperation. Breaking new ground, Anglo-American Relations and the Transmission of Ideas instead explores how ideas on either side of the Atlantic have mutually influenced each other. In those transnational interactions, there forms a shared tradition of political ideas, facilitating “a common cast of mind” that has served as the basis for transatlantic relations and political social values for decades.

Alan P. Dobson is honorary Professor at Swansea University, has held Chairs at Dundee University and at St Andrews (honorary) and fellowships at the Norwegian Nobel Institute, (Senior Research Fellowship) Saint Bonaventure University (Lenna) and Baylor University (Fulbright).

He is currently working on a book about the US, Britain and Canada at the Chicago International Civil Aviation Conference 1944. In 2014, he won the Virginia Military Institute’s Adam’s Centre annual Cold War Essay prize. He founded the Transatlantic Studies Association in 2002 and chaired it until 2013 and is editor of both the Journal of Transatlantic Studies, which he founded in 2003, and the International History Review.
