In this book some of the world's leading academic experts on American-European relations provide the most up to date presentations of the topic available today. The Iraq War represented a most serious challenge to American-European relations. Some of the contributors argue that NATO, the keyof the Atlantic relationship, has been harmed beyond repair. The Cold War is over; America has become more nationalist than it used to be; Europe has become more independent-minded vis-a-vis the United States. Others argue that the war was just another major crisis, like the many crises that hadaffected NATO even in its golden years during the Cold War. Recently the relationship has already improved a great deal; it is likely to improve even further.
Geir Lundestad is the director of the Norwegian Nobel Institute and a professor of international history at the University of Oslo. He has published numerous books and articles, particularly on the origins of the Cold War and on American-European relations after 1945.
