Alan Dobson (Swansea) - The Anglo-American ‘special relationship’ continues to generate discussion and controversy almost seventy years after the phrase was first made famous by Winston Churchill in his ‘Iron Curtain’ speech delivered at Westminster College, Fulton, Missouri, in February 1946. In this paper, Professor Alan Dobson confronts the issue of just how special the ‘Special Relationship’ has been since the end of the Second World War and examines the main threats to Anglo-American harmony in that time. In particular, he focuses on three crises – in 1946, 1949 and 1976 – that were spawned by economic issues but that connected with issues of power, identity and status to pose a greater threat to the ‘special relationship’ than the better known Suez Crisis of 1956.
