Europe at Bay is a salvo in the debate about the prospects of the European Union and its role in the international arena. Challenging prevailing interpretations of EU politics, Cafruny and Ryner argue that current problems are not a result of integration per se, nor of the ""growing pains"" that are inevitable as governance gradually shifts from the nation-state to supranational institutions, but instead arise from more fundamental sources. The authors eschew an idealized narrative as they explore the limits of the EU's economic and political power in relation to the United States, and of its neoliberal social and economic policies at home. They also consider the long-term prospects for the transatlantic relationship. Their work is a provocative contribution to a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of Europe's contemporary predicament.
