’…a timely and substantive contribution to the further - and much needed - discussion of the interconnected web of transatlantic relationships. The authors are well-chosen, both for their evident expertise and for their analytical familiarity with the "Agenda."…there is also a welcome balance in focus found in the essays on the Middle East, the Balkans, Russia and China, and on the triangular engagement of the United Nations…the essays have an enduring and transcendent quality and usefulness.’ Stephen M. McClain, The Johns Hopkins University, USA ’How is one to make sense of the collision, at a single point in time, of three mega-developments that will surely reshape transatlantic relations: The EU’s decision at Nice to acquire military tools to buttress its security policy; the new US administration’s decisions to take a unilateralist approach to world problems; and the battles against globalization from Seattle to Genoa. The New Transatlantic Agenda trenchantly provides some answers.’ Frank Loy, Former Under Secretary of State for Global Affairs, USA ’…an excellent scholarly contribution to the debate about transatlantic ties and the challenges facing North America and Europe in the 21st century…the editors should be congratulated for doing an excellent job…fascinating…’ Professor Erika Simpson, University of Western Ontario, Canada ’…contains some good chapters by well-known authors…this book is easy to read and extremely useful to those reflecting on the future of the relationship between the US and Europe.’ Ã‰tudes internationales
