From the cover: “It is 1977. A young, newly elected President sits in the White House, determined to use his country’s Special Relationship with Britain to pressure acceptance of his hawkish policies in Asia. The British Cabinet is divided: some favour the American view that India is leaning over into the arms of China; others wish to go ahead with plans to provide the Indians with a nuclear power programme. Once again, as in the dramatic dash over Africa two years before, personalities and policies collide, so that we see, brilliantly illuminated, some of the actual problems of our day and of our future.”
