Current Issues in U.S.-European Relations


Richard Sanders (Editor)

Series: American Political, Economic, and Security Issues

BISAC: POL011000

Since the end of the Second World War, successive U.S. administrations and many members of Congress have supported a close U.S. partnership with Europe. Often termed the transatlantic relationship, the U.S.-European partnership encompasses the NATO alliance, relations with the European Union (EU), and extensive bilateral political and economic ties. Despite periodic tensions over the past 70 years, U.S. and European policymakers have valued the transatlantic partnership as serving their respective geostrategic and economic interests. This book discusses U.S.-EU relations that may be of interest including U.S.-European cooperation on challenges such as managing a resurgent Russia, proposed new U.S.-EU trade agreement negotiations, trade and tariff policies and the U.S.-EU economic relationship.
