"An excellent book, fast-paced and carefully argued." - Dr. Justin Vaisse, Director of Research and Senior Fellow in Foreign Policy, Center on the United States and Europe, Brookings Institution "A very impressive, elegantly-written book. The subtlety and depth of the analysis are remarkable. The main argument is though-provoking and cogent: contrary to America itself, Europe cannot comfortably live in a post-American world." - Charles Heck, Former North American Director of the Trilateral Commission "A very interesting and refreshing book, often reminiscent of Fernand Braudel in its sweep." - Dr. Charles Cogan, Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs Harvard University Former CIA Bureau Chief in Paris "Lagadec has written an excellent book, trenchant in its analysis of frothy political rhetoric and persuasive in showing how the economic bonds between Europe and America remain the principal source of our global power and influence." - Samuel F. Wells, Woodrow Wilson Center "Erwan Lagadec's book is a remarkable and comprehensive work on transatlantic relations and the Western world. The main value of this book is to underline the significance of the choices that Europe faces today if it is to play a role in the global world of tomorrow." - Pierre Vimont, Executive Secretary General, European External Action Service, and former Ambassador of France to the United States "Lagadec's dissection of the present state of transatlantic relations is astute, well-informed, meticulously argued and, overall, compelling. While one may not agree with all his arguments, this book deserves to be read widely, and taken seriously." - Hanns Maull, Survival, Vol. 54, 6, December 2012
