Editorial Reviews

In his latest political essay, Kagan, a senior associate at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and a columnist for the Washington Post, casts a concise and controversial look at European-American relations in the early years of the 21st century. Originally published in English last January, this is the book version of an essay that sparked a withering debate in the United States and Europe in 2002. In it Kagan argues that today's conflict between the United States and Europe goes beyond the current disagreements over Bush's foreign policy or his handling of the war in Iraq. Kagan echoes a serious rift between a strong and cocky America and an increasingly weak Europe. While America is willing and able to use force to confront the world's security dilemma, Europe seeks diplomatic means. Europeans have painstakingly constructed a new world order that relies on negotiations and the absence of force, while Americans, aided by their preeminent military and economic position, have continued to be guided by notions of realpolitik. Such opposing views, Kagan argues, have led to political disagreements and a steady erosion of the historic friendship. Elegantly expressed and cogently argued, Kagan's dense ideas on foreign policy are accessible to the average reader. This important and timely book adds to the current debate raging among foreign policy experts as to the uses and abuses of American power and the country's role in the new century. Highly recommended for public and college libraries.
