This thesis uses fine-grained policy tracing to investigate Anglo-American management of the Belgian Congo Crisis and the Yemen Civil War (1958-1965). Drawing upon extensive primary sources gathered from multiple archives in the UK and the US, it examines policy formation and execution through different layers of the British and American bureaucracies and across multiple changes of government on both sides of the Atlantic. This approach provides new insights into the case studies and, more broadly, the practice and resilience of Anglo-American relations. Particular attention is paid to a modus operandi of Anglo-American exchange that evinced unusual degrees of informality, emphasis on personal relationships and willingness to share confidential information.
