Praise For…


“Stimulating and highly readable. . . . The Churchill Complex is a rich and rewarding book, the best overview that exists of Anglo-American relations from Churchill-FDR to the ‘bromance’ between Boris Johnson and Donald Trump. Buruma's personality sketches of both British and American leaders are as insightful as they are sharp.” —Wall Street Journal

“A smart, lively political history that illuminates the changing relations of two decidedly unequal partners.” Kirkus Reviews

“[A] brisk and insightful history. . . . Buruma writes fluidly and paints vivid sketches of key figures and moments. Political history buffs will be fascinated.” Publishers Weekly
