Christopher Hitchens in 2008

Blood, Class, and Nostalgia: Anglo-American Ironies is a 1990 book by Christopher Hitchens which aims to examine the so-called "Special Relationship" between the United States and Great Britain, with a focus especially on the 20th century. It was reissued in 2004 as Blood, Class and Empire: The Enduring Anglo-American Relationship, with a new preface by the author. The book is not and does not purport to be a history of the relationship; it is rather, as Hitchens describes it, a series of "incisions, made at selected crucial points."[1] The book is dedicated to the author's wife.
