Constantine A. Pagedas is a security specialist whose interests include U.S. and European security, the ethnic conflicts in the Balkans, the Middle East Peace Process, nuclear strategy and the control of nuclear weapons, and U.S. and European defense industry mergers and acquisitions. In his book Anglo-American Strategic Relations and the French Problem, 1960-1963: A Troubled Partnership, Pagedas examines Anglo-American strategic relations in light of France becoming a nuclear power. The author looks at how, in his estimation, a difficult relationship grew between Great Britain and the United States as France's Charles De Gaulle rose to power, which also led to growing tensions within the complex trilateral partnership of the United States, Great Britain, and France. Nigel J. Ashton, writing in the English Historical Review, called the book "an ambitious and welcome attempt to explore a particularly complex trilateral relationship during a pivotal phase of the Cold War." Ashton went on to comment that the author "has made a very good job of tracking down sources." In a review in the Aerospace Power Journal, Sam Grable asserted: "This is an impressively researched book that synthesizes a great deal of information into a very cogent analysis. It is recommended reading for students of international relations and history." Other critics also praised the book. Ritchie Ovendale, for instance, writing in the Journal of American History, called the volume "an absorbing account" with a "fascinating" conclusion.
