Summary

The Atlantic Centuryis the first major historical study to re-examine the American-European partnership with an emphasis on the personalities behind the policy. Our strong system of European alliances built during the last century did not happen serendipitously. It was carefully constructed and cemented by a network of diplomats and politicians, who imagined, built, and sustained a new international system. In their vision, America and Europe were part of a single cooperative transatlantic community not rivals or one another's periodic savior, as they had been during two world wars.Historian Kenneth Weisbrode revealsfor the first time, warts and allthe insider's story of such well-known figures as Dean Acheson, W. Averell Harriman, and Henry Kissinger. It is the story of how and why the State Department's Bureau of European Affairs (EUR)the "mother bureau" as it was called, the nerve center of the Atlanticistsrose to become the U.S. government's preeminent foreign policy office.In today's fractious world,The Atlantic Centuryis both timely and telling.
