Summary
"Why is America contested by Europeans? This book seeks to answer this question and contribute to a better understanding of contemporary transatlantic tensions." "Adopting different theoretical perspectives, the contributors to this volume assess the European discontent with America and relate this to the unilateral turn of US foreign policy in the 2000s. American unilateralism is interpreted by all the authors as the expression of a new conservative nationalism which has been growing in the country since the 1970s and became culturally hegemonic after 9/11." "This book will be vital reading for students of international relations, foreign policy analysis, American and European politics."--BOOK JACKET
