Irritation over U.S. Diplomacy Is Widespread in Britain Today

Strout, Richard
July 1954
New Republic;7/5/54, Vol. 131 Issue 1, p9
This article focuses on relations between the U.S. and Great Britain. The present British attitude toward the U.S. seems to me very jittery and touchy. Great Britain has a near psychopathic obsession with the U.S., America has a complacent attitude that it can take the British Commonwealth for granted, or ignore it. Britain is worried, with some cause, about its economy and its leadership. London, England is dominated by American films and musical comedies. The Broadway hit "Teahouse of the August Moon," opened with acclaim in April 1954 and the "New York Times " cabled over critics' comments.
