United States of Europe : The New Superpower and the End of American Supremacy - 04 edition

United States of Europe : The New Superpower and the End of American Supremacy (ISBN10: 0143036084; ISBN13: 9780143036081)
ISBN13: 978-0143036081
ISBN10: 0143036084

Summary: At the dawn of the new century, a geopolitical revolution of historic force is under way across the Atlantic: the unification of Europe. This new "United States of Europe" (to use Winston Churchill's term) has more people, more trade, more wealth, and more votes on every international body than does the United States of America. And the European Union is determined to be a superpower, whether America likes it or not." There's no better guide to the New
Europe than T. R. Reid. With his trademark combination of information, analysis, and wit, Reid reviews the noble (and the not-so-noble) reasons why Europe has come together. He examines the pan-continental pastime of America-bashing. He offers a look at the emerging "Generation E" and its Euroculture, with its common cuisine, language, pop music, sport, intoxicant, fears, and faith (or lack of it), and a shared commitment to a comfortable but expensive welfare state. The New Europe is a place where college education is free, doctors still make house calls (with no bill to pay), and corporate "downsizing" is against the law. As Reid demonstrates, Europe can afford all that because Americans are paying the EU's military bills.
