Review Quotes
"This is an insightful though sobering study of the decline of Atlanticism, the rise of trilateralism within Europe, and the impact of both those trends on the future of the Atlantic Alliance and ESDP. Anyone who wants to learn more about the domestic debates that raged in North American and European countries over the Kosovo and Iraq wars should read this book."--Karen E Smith, London School of Economics "This is an especially useful collection of essays that effectively place the Atlantic crisis of the past few years in the post-Cold War, post-9/11 international context, as well as in the national contexts of the major NATO/EU countries."--Simon Serfaty, Zbigniew Brzezinski Chair in Global Security and Geostrategy, Center for Strategic & International Studies

Summaries
Bowker Data Service Summary
Based on transatlantic relations, this book focuses on the Transatlantic Alliance's international and domestic contexts at the same time. It also assesses the period between the military intervention against Serbia by NATO, and the one in Iraq by the US, in terms of transatlantic security relations.
Long Description
The period between the military intervention against Serbia by NATO and the one in Iraq by the US has been a particularly turbulent one for transatlantic security relations. Is the malaise currently affecting the Transatlantic Alliance more serious than ever before and if so why? This book, with contributions from leading American, Canadian and European scholars, analyses the reasons behind the latest crisis of the Transatlantic Alliance and dissects its manifestations.
Main Description
The period between the military intervention against Serbia by NATO and the one in Iraq by the US has been a particularly turbulent one for transatlantic security relations. Is the malaise currently affecting the Transatlantic Alliance more serious than ever before and if so why? Will differences in the assessment of how to provide order and stability in the international system as well as in the evaluation of threats and how to respond to them mark the end of the Transatlantic Alliance? Or will the US, NATO, the EU, and EU member states work together, using different instruments and accepting a degree of division of labour, to pacify, stabilise and rebuild troublesome areas as they have done in South-Eastern Europe? This book, with contributions from leading American, Canadian and European scholars, analyses the reasons behind the latest crisis of the Transatlantic Alliance and dissects its manifestations.
Main Description
The period between the military intervention in Serbia and that in Iraq has been a particularly turbulent one for transatlantic security relations. Is the malaise currently affecting the transatlantic Alliance more serious than ever in the past, and if so why? Will differences in the assessment of how to provide order and stability in the international system as well as in the evaluation of threats and how to respond to them mark the end of the transatlantic Alliance? Or will the US, NATO, the EU and EU member states work together to pacify, stabilise and rebuild troublesome areas? For the transatlantic Alliance to endure, the US has to make sure that its 'assertive leadership' does not degenerate into 'arrogant unilateralism', while Europeans must accept that the further the problems are from their immediate neighbourhood the less significant their political voice and ability to influence outcomes will be.
