From the Publisher"In a century-long analytical survey blending economics and culture, ideas and diplomacy, Mary Nolan brings enviable breadth of knowledge and depth of thought to the full complexity of the transatlantic exchange. Throughout their varying encounters with modernity, she shows, Europe and the United States could never be disconnected, even as the discords and dissonances have grown."
Geoff Eley, University of Michigan
"Nolan’s The Transatlantic Century is a masterful work of synthesis: breathtaking in its scope and precise in its rich detail. It is the foundation from which every effort to understand the place of the United States in the economic and political revolutions of the twentieth century must now proceed."
Daniel T. Rodgers, Princeton University
"The Transatlantic Century will become a standard work on the changing relations between the U.S. and Europe in the twentieth century. It is synthetic, wide ranging, and important."
Ruth Oldenziel, Eindhoven University of Technology
"A stimulating and readable overview that shows the complexities of the era often stereotyped as the American Century."
David Reynolds, University of Cambridge
"With incisive prose and acuity of judgment Nolan offers a more comprehensive overview of European-American transatlantic relations than hitherto available."
Ian Tyrrell, Journal of American History
"In [this book], Mary Nolan has drawn on her expertise as an historian of the Atlantic world to produce a work that challenges the belief that the twentieth century was the American Century … [this] is an excellent resource for any upper-year undergraduate history or political science course that examines the United States, Europe, or the relations between the two regions. By questioning the traditional narrative offered by many textbook-style works and challenging the belief in American exceptionalism, [Nolan] forces readers to question their own views on the relationship between the United States and Europe … her work stimulates the discussion not only about transatlantic history but also the history of empires and transnational history. [Her] ability to shift seamlessly from a macrocosmic perspective to a microcosmic perspective is impressive and it is also refreshing to see the inclusion of Eastern Europe in her analysis."
