Eisenhower, Kennedy and the United States of Europe Summary


Eisenhower, Kennedy and the United States of Europe by Pascaline Winand

During the Eisenhower and Kennedy years, key American policymakers considered European unity as a potential element of stability and prosperity for the West, and as a factor of strength for the Atlantic Alliance. These policymakers were part of a unique network of friends and colleagues, in which both Americans and Europeans 'co-conspired' to further the cause of European integration. Using a wide range of official and private papers, as well as interviews with many of the participants in the events, this book assesses the impact of America Europeanists on US foreign policy under Eisenhower and Kennedy. Dr Winand convincingly demonstrates the decisive impact the United States has had in shaping postwar Europe and provides definitive analyses of the key issues of the period: over the birth of Euratom and the European Economic Community, the Free Trade Area Negotiations, the OECD, British membership of the Community, the idea of an 'Atlantic partnership between equals,' and the story of the ill-fated Multilateral Force. Eisenhower, Kennedy and the United States of Europe will quickly come to be seen as a centrally important work on this defining period in modern European history.
