The U.S.-European relationship remains the closest and most important alliance in the world. Since 1945, successive American presidents each put their own touches on transatlantic relations, but the literature has reached only into the presidency of Lyndon Johnson (1963-9). This first study of transatlantic relations during the era of Richard Nixon shows a complex, turbulent period during which the postwar period came to an end, and the modern era came to be on both sides of the Atlantic in terms of political, economic, and military relations.Read more
- Offers insights based on multilingual research in six countries (US, UK, France, Germany, Italy and Belgium)
- Utilizes newly transcribed conversations from Nixon's secret White House tapes
- Goes beyond the most common studies of China, the USSR, Vietnam, and Watergate during the Nixon Era, illustrating the extraordinary transformation that took place in transatlantic relations
Reviews & endorsements
"In his extremely well-researched, well-written, and carefully balanced account of Richard Nixon’s significant political and economic relations with Europe, Luke Nichter has brilliantly filled a major gap in our understanding of the administration’s foreign policy."
Melvin Small, Wayne State UniversitySee more reviews
"Steeped in transatlantic archives and written for a general audience, Richard Nixon and Europe is a landmark contribution that provides the first sophisticated analysis of how President Richard Nixon fit the Western European alliance into American foreign policy and how the Nixon Doctrine extended far beyond Vietnam to Western Europe."
Irwin F. Gellman, Franklin and Marshall College, Pennsylvania
"Impressively researched and persuasively argued, Luke Nichter’s book fills an important gap in the literature of the Nixon presidency. Overshadowed by China, the Soviet Union, and Vietnam, Europe was nevertheless an important arena in which Nixon sought to change American policies. Nichter has written a fascinating narrative of Nixon’s efforts, using the White House tapes to detail the end of the Bretton Woods system, and provided an insightful account of the divisions created between the United States and Europe over the Yom Kippur War."
Thomas Schwartz, Vanderbilt University, Tennessee
