Transatlantic Relations Since 1945 offers a comprehensive account of transatlantic relations in the second half of the 20th century (extending to the present-day).

The transatlantic relationship has been the bedrock of international relations since the end of World War II. This new textbook will focus on the period since the defeat of Nazi Germany, when the multitude of links between United States and Western Europe were created, extended, and multiplied. Written in an accessible style, it emphasizes transatlantic interactions, and avoids the temptation to focus on either U.S. ‘domination’ or European attempts to ‘resist’ an American effort to subjugate the old continent. That influence has travelled across the Atlantic in both directions is one of the starting points of this text.

Structured chronologically, the book will be built around three key themes:

  • Security: From the Cold War to the War on Terror
  • Economics: Integration and Competition
  • ‘Soft power’ and Transatlantic Relations.

This book will be of great interest to students of transatlantic relations, NATO, US Foreign Policy, Cold War History, European History and IR/International history.

Product Description


‘At a time of alarming turbulence in the global economy and of gloomy pessimism about the overall state of the international system, Hanhimaki's book stands as a useful reminder of the complexities and the frailties, but also of  the remarkable resilience and the persistent importance, of the Transatlantic partnership in the history of the world since 1945.' -- Leopoldo Nuti, Roma Tre University, Italy

‘Although a central aspect of the world since 1945, the Transatlantic relationship has lacked a good introductory text. This book is therefore a hugely welcome publication.’ -- Piers Ludlow, London School of Economics, UK
