Overview

As questions underlying the current rift between the United States and its European allies over Iraq persist, distinguished scholars-Stephen Schuker, Michael Radu, Jeremy Black, and others-consider whether that gathering of nations long known as "the West" remains a valid construct. These insightful essays look beyond transatlantic complaints to probe underlying difficulties, explore sources of conflict, assess prospects for economic divergence, and advocate a workable security policy.
