Winston Churchill famously described the political alliance between the US and UK as a 'special relationship', but throughout the cultural history of these two countries there have existed transatlantic 'special relationships' of another kind - affairs between British and American citizens who have fallen in love, with one another but often too with the idea(l) of that other place across the ocean. From romantic novelist Elinor Glyn in the 1920s to Prince Harry and Meghan Markle today, this collection examines some of the history, contemporary manifestations and enduring appeal of US-UK romance across popular culture. Looking at both historical and contemporary case-studies, drawn from across film, television, music, literature, news and politics, this is a timely intervention into the popular romantic discourse of US-UK relations, at a critical and transitional moment in the ongoing viability of the special relationship.

Author Gweneth Jules Moorhouse was born on Dominica, a small jewel of an island in the Caribbean West Indies. After her father abandoned his family and broke their mother’s heart, her childhood was one of uncertainty and sadness, His broken promise to marry the mother of his children had no impact on her devotion to him. His betrayal ruined her life. Gweneth’s mother worked tirelessly to keep her children safe through it all. Luckily for the family, her mother’s family stepped up to offer support where they could. The children never really knew their father, but the surprise discovery of their mother’s most treasured possession—a box of letters from their father, in which he vainly and repeatedly promised to marry her and take care of his children—changed everything. The children learned the painful lesson their mother never did. As a result, they ejected him from their lives—and their hearts. But despite all of life’s harsh lessons about love and trust, fate had a generous gift for young Gweneth. One day, quite by chance, an American tourist came into the department store where she worked. Now, she shares the beautiful story of their romance and courtship, and how he eventually won over her wounded heart. After he returned to the States, theirs was a romance that spanned both time and distance. Once she was sure, she followed him to his home in America, and there they built a life together.

A young Chinese woman's dream fully comes true— she gets to graduate school in America, bursting with energy. To make money, Saiyue cleans fish in a restaurant, cooks for her landlady and does computer programming for a Chinese-American professor, with whom a mutual attraction develops. She wants to become a permanent resident. How about marrying the professor? But she already has a husband back in China. Is it right to divorce him, because she knows he had an old flame that just wouldn't burn out? Actually, Saiyue desires more, like experiencing life to the fullest, enjoying all the freedom Americans can offer, including the sexual. Yet, as she grows in life with heightened intellectuality and spirituality, she struggles with her conscience, and so dearly misses her young son in China. What are her values? With the traditional ones enfeebled by the Cultural Revolution and Communist teachings discredited by China's opening to the West, Saiyue, like many young Chinese of her generation, had to find valueson her own. The author tells the story with spellbinding and spicy details, juxtaposing the old and new cultures— traditional Confucianism, Communist-Socialist ethics, contemporary American mores and the women's movement.

In this broad-ranging survey of Paris, Tahiti, Indochina, Japan, New Caledonia, and the South Pacific generally, Matt Matsuda illustrates the fascinating interplay that shaped the imaginations of both colonizer and colonized. Drawing on a wealth of primary sources, Matsuda describes the constitution of a "French Pacific" through the eyes of Tahitian monarchs, Kanak warriors, French politicos and prisoners, Asian revolutionaries and Central American laborers, among others. He argues that French imperialism in the Pacific, both real and imagined, was registered most forcefully in languages of desire and love--for lost islands, promised wealth and riches, carnal and spiritual pleasures--and political affinities. Exploring the conflicting engagements with love for and against the empire in the Pacific, this book is an imaginative and ground-breaking work in global imperial and colonial histories, as well as Pacific histories.

Across the Atlantic is a fascinating and lucid reminiscence of a series of events and results: the age of love in Africa, the reign of terror, the capture and commoditization of human beings, their shipment to the Americas, the incessant and onerous exactions meted on them, the brutalization and cruelties they experienced, the survival and tenacity of African values, the struggle for freedom, and emancipation, and the triumphant return to Africa.
