European integration and the Atlantic community in the 1980s
Title: European integration and the Atlantic community in the 1980s
Citation: New York ; Cambridge : Cambridge University Press, 2013
This unique collection of essays lays the groundwork for the study of the intersection of European integration and transatlantic relations in the 1980s. With archives for this period only recently opened, scholars are beginning to analyse and understand what some have called an apogee of the European project and others have called the Second Cold War. How do these moments intersect and relate to one another? These essays, by prominent scholars from Europe and the United States, examine this and related questions while challenging conventional chronologies.
