Special Relations
Stanford University Press

This book has prsented an excursion through two decades of the postwar Anglo-American relationship. It has shown the liberal social analysis of American capitalism, and the rhetoric, organization, and sometimes direct agency of radical American dissidents. The transatlantic counterculture both inspired and provoked the politics of the personal, resulting to its own fragmentation and the radical reconstruction of minority subjectivities that mark the liberation movements of blacks, women, and gay people. Radical liberationism crossed the Atlantic and enjoyed a brief but intense period of activism and high publicity. After 1976, Britain painfully reoriented and regrounded its economy. It is noted that it is hard to get away from the fact that in Britain “America” was for many a strong and often determining effect in defining the mid- and late-twentieth-century mentality and aspiration.

Keywords:   postwar Anglo-American relationship, American capitalism, transatlantic counterculture, liberation movements, radical liberationism, activism, Britain
