520    History records only one peaceful transition of hegemonic 
       power: the passage from British to American dominance of 
       the international order. What made that transition 
       uniquely cooperative and nonviolent? Does it offer lessons
       to guide policy as the United States faces its own 
       challengers to the order it has enforced since the 1940s? 
       To answer these questions, Kori Schake explores nine 
       points of crisis or tension between Britain and the United
       States, from the Monroe Doctrine in 1823 to the 
       establishment of the unequal "special relationship" during
       World War II. Over this period, Safe Passage shows, the 
       United States gradually changed the rules that Britain had
       established at its imperial height. It was able to do so 
       peacefully because, during the crucial years, Britain and 
       the United States came to look alike to each other and 
       different from other nations. Britain followed America's 
       lead in becoming more democratic, while the United States,
       because of its conquest of the American West, developed an
       imperial cast of mind. Until the end of World War II, both
       countries paid more attention to their cumulative power 
       relative to other states in the order than to their 
       individual power relative to each other. The factors that 
       made the Anglo-American transition peaceful, notably the 
       convergence in their domestic ideologies, are unlikely to 
       apply in future transitions, Schake concludes. We are much
       more likely to see high-stake standoffs among competing 
       powers attempting to shape the international order to 
       reflect the starkly different ideologies that prevail at 
       home.--|cProvided by publisher
