Synopsis The involvement of Britain with the Americas from the earliest age of exploration to the present is examined in entries about politics, government, culture, wars, economy, religion, slavery, and sports. The entries include very specific incidents and locales—San Juan Archipelago, Aroostook War, Hay-Pauncefote treaties, and the Rush- Bagot Convention—as well as more general subjects, such as the Atlantic economy, the Cold War, Greece, Iran, Iraq, terrorism, and witchcraft. Multiple entries are included for art and artists, drama, fiction, literary relations, poetry, and slavery, with each of these subjects presented in separate essays on different regions. Five introductory essays provide an overview of Britain's relation with, in turn, the Atlantic, Canada, the Caribbean, Latin America, and the U.S. The advisory board for the work is made up of seven academics at universities in England.
