The much vaunted Anglo-American "special relationship" is, Alex Danchev asserts, a will-o'-the-wisp. On Specialness represents, in effect, an exercise in "photographing fairies". Like the hero of Nick Willing's recent film, Danchev is concerned to capture the essence of the elusive spectre, both to confirm its existence to disbelievers but also to reveal its precise features

Specialness is semaphor. It needs to be decoded and analyzed. Otherwise it is unintelligible. 'It is special. It just is. And that's that' - Margaret Thatcher, in characteristic mode. Yet scholars have not done much better. Too often in the literature of the special relationship attitude trumps analysis. These essays represent a consolidated attempt to go further. They investigate the who and what and how of this extraordinary relationship. They focus on the personalities and strategies of the wartime and post-war period. They examine the meaning and demeaning of an idea - the idea of a boon companion in a hostile world - and they ask if we can, after all, specify specialness.
