Review quote

Rarely are the fundamental differences between US and European foreign policies brought properly into comparative focus. This volume succeeds superbly well in bringing out the underlying fault-lines between the allies' respective approaches to the great issues of contemporary international relations. It dispenses with the facile stereotypes of Venus/Mars or hard/soft power and brings out, with nuance and sophistication, the deeper elements of convergence and divergence. -- Jolyon Howorth, Jean Monnet Professor of European Politics at Yale University This volume will be essential reading for all those interested in European and US foreign policy, and transatlantic relations. It provides a sound theoretical framework plus cutting-edge analysis of the most important areas for cooperation between the EU and US. The chapters on Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan, Russia, China, and terrorism reveal the continuity as well as the differences between Obama's approach and that of George W. Bush. -- Fraser Cameron, former foreign policy advisor for the European Commission and current Director of the EU Russia Centreshow more
