Summary

What will the new world order look like-a tripole, a layer cake, a concert hall? Will Europe and the United States continue in their tradition of interdependence and admiration or emerge as economic rivals, political strangers, and cultural antipodes as the rest of the world-notably Japan-moves forward? These are just some of the questions explored within this unusual volume. No matter how the questions may be resolved, the transatlantic relationship is in flux, and new roles, responsibilities, and capacities are being defined. Here, leading scholars converge on the prospects for change in U.S.-European relations and offer new insights into the theory and practice of international relations in a reconfigured world. Each original essay addresses a set of common themes central to the study of the new global order: causes and consequences of change; balance versus currencies of power; international institutions; conflict versus cooperation; winners versus losers; foreign versus domestic priorities; new roles and policy options. At the same time, each essay is distinguished by the particular theoretical perspective of its author, and all themes and theories are drawn together in a powerful introduction by the international editorial team.
