The American has been published since 1976, the USA's Bicentennial year, for Americans in the UK – visitors, vacationers, those working here and those who have decided to make Britain their home. They come from all walks of life, but many are in banking & finance, the oil industry, the military, the diplomatic corps or are entrepreneurs and run their own companies here.
