Anglo-American relations
British–American relations encompass many complex relations ranging from two wars to the closest forms of cooperation, over the span of four centuries, beginning in 1607 with England's first permanent colony in North America at Jamestown, Virginia, to the present day.
The two nations are bound together by shared history, an overlap in religion and a common language and legal system, and kinship ties that reach back hundreds of years, including kindred, ancestral lines among English Americans, Scottish Americans, Welsh Americans, and Scotch-Irish Americans. Today large numbers of expatriates live in the other country.
Through times of war and rebellion, peace and estrangement, as well as becoming friends and allies, the UK and the USA cemented these deeply rooted links during World War II into what is known as the "Special Relationship", described in 2009 by British political commentator Christiane Amanpour as "the key trans-Atlantic alliance", which the U.S. Senate Chair on European Affairs acknowledged in 2010 as "one of the cornerstones of stability around the world."
Today, the relationship with the United States represents the "most important bilateral partnership" in current British foreign policy, and the American foreign policy affirms its relationship with the United Kingdom as its most important bilateral relationship, as evidenced in aligned political affairs, mutual cooperation in the areas of trade, commerce, finance, technology, academics, as well as the arts and sciences; the sharing of government and military intelligence, and joint combat operations and peacekeeping missions carried out between the United States Armed Forces and the British Armed Forces. The UK has always been the biggest foreign investor in the USA and vice versa.
The two countries combined make up a huge percentage of world trade, a significant impact of the cultures of many other countries and territories, and are the largest economies and the most populous nodes of the Anglosphere, with a combined population of over 370 million as of 2010. Together, they have given the English language a dominant role in many sectors of the modern world.
There is a maritime boundary between the British dependent territories of the British Virgin Islands and Anguilla, and the United States' dependent territories of the US Virgin Islands and Puerto Rico.
According to a 2013 BBC World Service Poll, 74% of Americans view the United Kingdom positively, with only 14% expressing a negative view. However, British views of the U.S. are much more sharply divided, with 46% viewing the U.S. positively and 46% viewing the U.S. negatively.

"Convergence in Industrial Relations Institutions: The Emerging Anglo-A" by Alexander J.S. Colvin and Owen Darbishire
At the outset of the Thatcher/Reagan era, the employment and labor law systems across six Anglo-American countries could be divided into three pairings: the Wagner Act model of the United States and Canada; the Voluntarist system of collective bargaining and strong unions in the United Kingdom and Ireland; and the highly centralized, legalistic Award systems of Australia and New Zealand. The authors argue that there has been growing convergence in two major areas: First, of labor law toward a private ordering of employment relations in which terms and conditions of work and employment are primarily determined at the level of the enterprise; and second, of individual employment rights, toward a basket of minimum standards that can then be improved upon by the parties. The greatest similarity is found in Canada, the United Kingdom, New Zealand, and Australia. Ireland retains a greater degree of public ordering, while the United States diverges in favoring the interests of employers over those of employees and organized labor. The authors explore reasons for the convergence.
