Bridging the Atlantic: Domestic politics and Euro-American relations

Mark Nelson
05 December 1997

Is the transatlantic relationship an unhealthy dependency, a Cold War relic? That's the view of a growing number of people on both sides of the Atlantic who are increasingly questioning the relevance of the special link between Europe and America. At a time when Europe is poised to become a more influential player on the world stage with the introduction of the euro, Mark Nelson examines the growing scepticism about the Euro-American relationship emerging among domestic audiences and politicians.
