"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."--BOOK JACKET.… (més)

I read this as a library book long before I was given a copy, but I still recall how engrossed I was in this book that treated Europe in the modern era rather than as an antique.

Some of the ideas in this book have become a trifle dated, but I read it shortly after it came out and I was fascinated by the possibilities.

Reid eloquently describes the rise of the EU and what it means for the U.S. as well as other states such as China. I personally think Reid overstates his case, glossing over the general inefficiency of the central government in Brussels, such as it is. ( )

There’s a reason why T.R. Reid’s book, published three years ago, continues to enjoy a very nice sales ranking on amazon. With great humor and intelligence, Reid describes: 1) many of the developments leading up to the formation of the EU; 2) some of its early achievements (read especially Chapters 3 and 4, “The Almighty Undollar” and “Welch’s Waterloo”); and 3) the future implications of a unified Europe both for the US and the world. Much of the work comes from events Reid has witnessed firsthand as a Washington Post correspondent and NPR commentator, the rest from some pretty comprehensive research. Rolf Dobelli, PhD and Chairman of getAbstract.com, “[recommends] this book to managers of U.S. companies that have European offices and to anyone interested in contemporary international relations.” Granted, that may not be the zippy, exuberant rave you’d expect from an American reviewer, but if this book is correct we’d all better start getting used to a little European understatement! Highly recommended for everyone to read—the sooner the better. ( )

Author tries and fails to argue that Europe is the next superpower. ( )
