When Barack Obama made his first presidential visit to London, his briefing began thus: England is a place slightly smaller than Oregan". So much for the 'Special Relationship'. Notes on Them & Us is a wry account of this transatlantic friendship as it actually exists today - how Americans see us, how we Brits see them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
If you want to know what makes Americans tick, read this book. Webb knows America - and it shows.
Not since Charles Wheeler has the BBC had as fine an American correspondent. His perceptive reporting has been a joy. * The Times *
Webb's take on the two great nations is expert, familiar, profound, funny
Webb was the BBC's North American editor for eight years. Here he straddles the Pond to explore the tectonic shifts between Britain and America, and why, even if they rub each other up the wrong way, the two nations are inextricably linked. * The Times *
Webb offers a fun look at politics. * The Catholic Herald *
