Thanks for organising this. I'd like to make an announcement of a forthcoming
publication, expected late November, details below.
The Transatlantic Era (1989–2020) in Documents and Speeches
This accessible textbook uses key documents embedded in a clear, critical narrative to
chart the post-Cold War rise and decline of transatlantic relations. It provides a novel
interpretive framework by proposing that the three decades between 1989 and 2020 represent
a distinct ‘transatlantic era’.
Providing a unique new look at the recent history and politics of transatlantic relations,
the book argues that three key phases can be identified:
* 1989–1999: victory?
* 2000–2010: divergence?
* 2011–2020: disarray?
Each period defines a particular set of political, economic, and security dynamics, with
the trend being a gradual undermining of the strengths on which transatlantic unity once
relied. These three decades therefore represent both the high point of the transatlantic
region’s power and potential, and its gradual decline in a global context. Presenting
students with a critical perspective of US and European transatlantic policies through
annotated key documents covering central aspects of security, political, economic, and
cultural affairs, it will be essential reading on all International Relations courses as
well as of great interest to scholars and students of US and European Studies, Foreign
Policy, and Security Studies.
