About the Authors
  • This book examines the causes and consequences of the crisis in Atlantic relations that accompanied the invasion of Iraq in March 2003. A dstinguished group of political scientists and historians from Europe and the United States tackles these issues. The authors' collective focus is not on the war itself, or how it was conducted, or even the situation in Iraq either before or after the conflict. Instead, the crisis over Iraq is the starting point for an examination of transatlantic relations and specifically the Atlantic alliance, an examination that is cross-national in scope and multi-disciplinary in approach.

    • Examines the causes and consequences of the crisis in Atlantic relations that accompanied the invasion of Iraq in March 2003
    • The volume is cross-national in scope and multi-disciplinary in approach
    • Contributors are leading names in the field from both sides of the Atlantic

    Reviews & endorsements

    "Of all the volumes devoted to the U.S.-European crisis over Iraq, this one, the result of a series of seminars at the European University Institute in 2002, is probably the most balanced and probing. Most of the authors deal not only with the 'blowup' of 2002-3 but also with earlier tensions and trends, adding depth to their treatment of the crisis itself." Stanley Hoffman, Foreign Affairs

    “Andrews has assembled an impressive collection of chapters devoted to the study of transatlantic relations and the current status of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The contributors come from the academic disciplines of history, international relations, and political science, and thus the book has multidisciplinary appeal. Highly recommended. ”
