Overview

The extent of Europe's influence in the twenty-first century is one of the fundamental questions in a rapidly changing world order. How much does Europe still matter in geostrategic affairs? Will the Europeans seek more international clout and be willing to pay the price for it? Above all, will the European-American partnership prosper or weaken? In the only comprehensive study available on the subject, leading international experts explore these vital questions for global peace and security. The book includes authoritative chapters on the foreign policies of the major European countries, of the European Union, and of Europe toward key regions and countries—especially the United States, Russia, China, and the Middle East.

Editorial Reviews

Markus Thiel
This valuable work makes sense of Europe's complex foreign relations. It puts together the play of national interests in EU negotiations, common European ambitions, and Europe's role in international geopolitics. Accessible yet nuanced, the book will appeal to students and scholars of European politics and beyond.
Vivien A. Schmidt
An enlightening book written in an engaging style by an impressive line-up of top experts on the main issues in European foreign policy. This is a must-read for all those who want to understand not only how the European Union works—or not—in the world today but also why it does so.
Sean Kay
This essential book brings together some of the very top experts on European foreign policy. By integrating both European Union and national perspectives on traditional and emerging foreign policy challenges—including security, the financial crisis, energy, and other vital 21st-century issues—this book serves not only to enhance the study of Europe but also to provide a must read for all students of international relations.
Ulrike Guérot
A wonderful overview of the beginnings of the European integration project and the twentieth-century geo-strategy that made 'an ever closer union' emerge as a political goal. The book brilliantly sketches out the new challenges Europe is facing in the new century after the 1989 tectonic shifts in the international system and their impact on the West's security architecture.
