Description

With particular reference to the field of architecture, this text examines the economic and political consequences for Britain of the post-war Anglo-American 'special relationship', providing detailed studies of key buildings and urban planning initiatives, blended with a wider theoretical analysis of socio-economic and cultural developments.

By looking at the effects on a highly developed Western country of a more powerful ally on which it was becoming increasingly dependent, the book critically revisits the usual themes of post-colonial studies, making this a thought-provoking and innovative analysis.
