Growing Apart? : America and Europe in the 21st Century Paperback / softback

Edited by Jeffrey Kopstein


Many thought the 21st century would witness political, economic and even ideological convergence amongst the countries of the West.

This has not happened. Today we see America 'growing apart' from her democratic allies and neighbors.

Growing Apart shows how the social, political, and economic forces shaping advanced democratic states are pushing America in different directions from the rest of the democratic world and argues that these changes are not the product of any particular president or government.

This volume brings together a set of leading scholars who each examine the evolution of different social, political, and economic forces shaping Europe and America.

It is the first book to unite the international relations scholarship on transatlantic relations with the comparative politics literature on the varieties of capitalism.

Taken together, the essays in this volume address whether the 'West' will continue to remain a coherent entity in the 21st century.
