This book is the final one in the author’s series of four monographs dealing with the study of the origin, formation and consolidation of the Anglo-Saxon model of social order, in general, and the armed forces, in particular. It examines issues related to the birth of the American nation and statehood and analyzes the thorny path the two main Anglo-Saxon states have travelled in their relationship from confrontation to the actual military and political alliance.
It is the first attempt in domestic historical science to trace the formation of the Anglo-Saxon ideology based on imperial nationalism and its practical implementation under the sign of these two states’ ‘domination’ in the international arena.
The book is intended for students of world politics and international law, experts in international and military security, as well as for all those interested in the problems of international relations.
This book continues a series of Sergei L. Pechurov’s publications on the origins and development of the Anglo-Saxon model of society and armed forces.
