‘Divided West makes a unique contribution to a vast literature on transatlantic relations. Rather than complaining how bad things are, the authors offer a lucid theoretical framework in which the current transatlantic imbroglio is clinically dissected. It is clearly the most thorough and thought-provoking book available in the field.’
Peter van Ham, Clingendael Institute, The Hague
‘This book makes uneasy but essential reading for Atlanticists and Europeanists. At the interface of theory and policy, this superb analysis plunges deep into the divide that is today's West and pulls no punches about the implications of strategic dissonance. It is quite simply a must read for anyone who cares deeply about the West and Europe's place within it.’
Julian Lindley-French, Centre for Applied Policy, University of Munich
