This book is about the triangular political and cultural relationship between America, Britain, and continental Europe.
The triangular relationship between America, Britain, and continental Europe is both fraught and dynamic. Post-war reconstruction of Europe brought integration. Creating a "United States of Europe" was a goal shared by many Americans. Yet the contemporary "War on Terror," has redefined relationships between America, Britain, "old" and "new" Europe. For Britain, the Channel seems wider than the Atlantic, although geopolitically it is part of Europe. This book brings together experts from Britain, Europe and America to explore the complexities of contemporary cultural and political relationships, to consider the challenges that have been met and those that have to be faced.
