Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

'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 US 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.' Gregg French, H-Empire

Présentation de l'éditeur

This is a fascinating new overview of European-American relations during the long twentieth century. Ranging from economics, culture and consumption to war, politics and diplomacy, Mary Nolan charts the rise of American influence in Eastern and Western Europe, its mid-twentieth century triumph and its gradual erosion since the 1970s. She reconstructs the circuits of exchange along which ideas, commodities, economic models, cultural products and people moved across the Atlantic, capturing the differing versions of modernity that emerged on both sides of the Atlantic and examining how these alternately produced co-operation, conflict and ambivalence toward the other. Attributing the rise and demise of American influence in Europe not only to economics but equally to wars, the book locates the roots of many transatlantic disagreements in very different experiences and memories of war. This is an unprecedented account of the American Century in Europe that recovers its full richness and complexity.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Scholarly but readable book explaining American-European relationships of the 20th Century and beyond. 30 mars 2015
Par Martha Phillips - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is a very scholarly well researched book and I was a little apprehensive about taking it on as I am not a scholar. It is a good read. Once I started it I could not put it down. My knowledge of Europe has always centered around the events of World War II and that colored my attitudes and ideas of American-European relationships. This book starts well before World War I and gives a detailed account of those relationships. When you but World War II in context of the whole of the 20th Century you begin to get a better understanding of how we Americans fit in. The economic background in particular is so valuable in understanding American-European responses to world history, politics and culture. A quote from the book sums it up the attitude so many Americans have today. "The United States thinks and acts like an empire with global interest; it insist that what happens anywhere is relevant and cannot understand why Europeans do not share America's perceptions of opportunities, interest and above all threats. The American Government and many citizens argue that national security is the top priority: they have been willing to sacrifice social
welfare in pursuit of it........" A must read for those Americans who see World War II as the Good War and still see American as global policemen. This book would be a great choice for a book discussion group.
