From the Publisher'This well-structured, crisply written volume is one of the best– and certainly one of the most succinct and conceptuallyinteresting – to have been authored on that battered entityknown as the transatlantic relationship. Quietly but effectivelychallenging the official myth that the crisis is now past, Forsbergand Herd reveal beyond all possible doubt that the trauma thatarose as a result of Iraq and 9/11 still remains unresolved and, inofficial circles at least, little understood. Divorce may not be onthe cards just yet. Nonetheless, difficult and problematic timeslie ahead. A sobering, indeed essential read for policy-makers andacademics on both sides of an ever-widening Atlantic.'
Michael Cox, London School of Economics
‘Divided West makes a unique contribution to a vastliterature on transatlantic relations. Rather than complaining howbad things are, the authors offer a lucid theoretical framework inwhich the current transatlantic imbroglio is clinically dissected.It is clearly the most thorough and thought-provoking bookavailable in the field.’
Peter van Ham, Clingendael Institute, The Hague
‘This book makes uneasy but essential reading forAtlanticists and Europeanists. At the interface of theory andpolicy, this superb analysis plunges deep into the divide that istoday's West and pulls no punches about the implications ofstrategic dissonance. It is quite simply a must read for anyone whocares deeply about the West and Europe's place withinit.’
