Anglo-America is the third circle of England. Originally within the Empire it has grown in importance as the circle of Empire contracted. Anglo-America includes not just the United States but those other colonies of settlers, especially Australia, Canada, and New Zealand, where English is the first language. These former imperial possessions once shaped by England now shape ‘England’ in return, none more so than the United States. Modern America both attracts and repels in equal measure, leaving most people ambivalent in their feelings towards it. For many Britons America represents the things they most value as well as the things they most detest.
