Foundation Publishers, 1996.
A success story at the crossroads - the partial erosion of the relationship
between Europe and America is undeniable. Even declarations of mutual
friendship are no longer are no longer enough to hide the emerging sings
of alienation between the two continents. What can be done to give a new
form to the transatlantic partnership and to take it successfully into
the next century? Werner Weidenfeld, an acknowledged expert in the political
scenes on both sides of the Atlantic, takes an unforgiving look at the
European-American relationship. Tracing the partnership from its origins
to the present day, he casts light on the ongoing tension between harmonization
and dramatization, closeness and distance. This book is essential reading
for anyone who wants to understand transatlantic relations.
