520 8  This is an authoritative reexamination of the Cuban 
       missile crisis and Britain's role in it. It re-evaluates 
       existing interpretations in light of new British and U.S. 
       archives and recent Soviet and U.S. scholarship.|bIn 
       October 1962, the world went to the brink of Armageddon. 
       This study provides a new archive-based account of the 
       Cuban missile crisis, providing the first detailed and 
       authoritative account from the British perspective. The 
       book draws upon new British and US archival material and 
       recent scholarship in the west and the former USSR. The 
       diplomatic, military and intelligence dimensions of 
       British policy are scrutinised. New material is presented 
       and existing interpretations of UK-US relations at this 
       crucial moment are reassessed. The book contributes a new 
       aspect to the literature on the Cuban missile crisis, by 
       exploring where the views of Washington and its closest 
       ally converged and diverged.
