Transatlantic Conflict and Consensus: Culture, History & Politics - Roberta Haar and Neil Wynn (Eds.)
 
Book Information
 

Full Description:


This volume of essays originated from a conference held at the then Maastricht (now Middelburg) Centre for Transatlantic Studies in 2006. MCTS is a consortium of U.S., Mexican, and European institutions that brings together students and faculty in the Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences to study issues and developments that both unite and separate countries on either side of the Atlantic. These papers explore the range of shared and sometimes conflicting concerns not just in international relations (although that is an important part of the collection), but also on historical, cultural, and political issues. In doing so, they highlight the variety of different ways in which transatlantic studies can offer insights into experiences that cross simple national and physical boundaries both in the past and present day.
The book is divided broadly into sections focussing on cultural, historical, political, and international relations aspects of transatlantic relations, and is intended for an audience in American Studies, Transatlantic Studies, International Relations, International Politics, International History, and Cultural Studies.

The editors reflect these different interests and perspectives, coming as they do from institutions in the UK, USA, and the Netherlands. The various contributors come from a number of different countries and reflect the perspectives of both senior and promising early career scholars.
