America Conquers Britain: A Record of Economic War

£19.99

Product description

Ludwell Denny
Alfred A Knopf, London & New York, 1930.
Hardback; 170 x 240 mm; light grey boards with red titles on spine and front cover with a device in silver of interlocking cogwheels; xii, 429, & xvi pages; top edge painted. Original unclipped dust jacket.
The dust cover is in poor condition. The top half of the spine is missing as well as other parts around the edges. It is held in a protective transparent cover with white paper underneath the jacket. The flaps are tanned.
The book itself is in good condition. The binding is sound. Both ends of the spine are bumped as are the bottom corners of the covers. The spine is grubby. There is tanning of the front and back endpapers, and the fore and bottom edges of the leaves are tanned with some foxing. The front paste-down endpaper is annotated in ink “40” and “P BLOWER 53 MOUNT RD. WIMBLEDON PARK”. There is a small closed tear at the top of page 325/326.
This is a record, from the American point of view, of a long economic struggle for foreign markets and financial supremacy. The author was for many years the foreign and diplomatic correspondent for American newspapers and magazines. In this detailed study of the Anglo-American struggle for economic supremacy, he explains that the best way to avoid a trade war becoming an armed conflict is to expose the truth of the situation so that the two nations can go forward in this knowledge.
The importance of this book is that it sets out one view taken by those in America at the time as to what the future might hold for Anglo-American relations before the subsequent events with which all are now familiar. It is therefore probably now more of academic interest rather than aimed at a general readership as it was originally.
