At a time when the United States faces challenging new international
threats, its relationship with its allies is as important as ever.
Yet the partnership the US has with its NATO partners in Europe is
going through a process of change. How does America understand its
relationship with Europe in a post-Cold War, and post 9-11, context?
Likewise, how do Europeans view Americans? This course addresses
these questions by looking at the histories, institutions and
contemporary political cultures of the United States and Europe. Its
goal is to offer insights into the difficulties and opportunities
facing contemporary US/European relations.
