Summary
During the Eisenhower and Kennedy years, key American policy-makers 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 policy-makers were part of a unique network of American and European friends and colleagues who '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 American Europeanists on U.S. foreign policy under Eisenhower and Kennedy. Dr. Winand convincingly demonstrates the decisive impact the United States has had in shaping post-war Europe and provides definitive analyses of the key issues and events of the period: the birth of Euratom and the European Economic Community, the Free Trade Area Negotiations, the O.E.C.D., British membership in 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
