Summary

In Partners or Rivals? a multinational group of scholars examines the state of European-American relations in the wake of the Iraq War that began in 2003. They take a long view of the evolution of European-American relations rather than limit their analysis to day-to-day recriminations over the wisdom of launching an invasion that split the NATO alliance. The contributors address questions about the future role of the United States in NATO, whether a coherent European Union could emerge as a challenger to that alliance, and what part Russia is likely to play. Chapters treat the "special relationship" between Britain and the United States, the significance of the former Soviet-bloc countries of the "New Europe," transnational peace activism, terrorism, organized crime, and the politics of the European monetary union. The book includes a series of brief, insightful commentaries responding to the chapters, making connections among them, and raising questions for further research.
