After years of mutual resentment and tension, there is a sudden recognition that the real interests of America and its European allies are diverging sharply and that the trans-atlantic relationship itself has changed, possibly irreversibly. Europe sees the United States as high-handed, unilateralist, and unnecessarily belligerent; the United States sees Europe as spent, unserious, and weak. The anger and mistrust on both sides are hardening into incomprehension. Author Robert Kagan reached incisively into this impasse to force both sides to see themselves through the eyes of the other. Tracing the widely differing histories of Europe and America since the end of World War II, he makes clear how for one the need to escape a bloody past has led to a new set of transnational beliefs about power and threat, while the other has evolved into the guarantor of that "postmodern paradise" by dint of its might and global reach.… (més)

Después de años de resentimiento mutuo y la tensión, hoy es necesario decir que los intereses de los EE.UU. y Europa se desvían aún más . Europa ve a los EE.UU. como un poder arbitrario y agresivo , mientras que los EE.UU. ve a Europa como un continente riguroso y débil . Este sugerente libro ofrece un análisis único, esencial para entender la relación entre estas dos potencias . - The Washington Post ( )

An apologist of US economic & military superpower, US unilateral supremacy. The West is made of the Hobbesian US Superpower (Leviathan), irrespective of International Law, and the Powerless European Kantian Paradise, favouring the rule of law, and multilateralism to limit US abuse of dominant position. Ukraine civil war is their baby to weaken Russia growing influence..

This is an interesting little volume which contrasts European versus American security issues. Kagan explains why the Europeans do not view world-wide security threats in the same manner as do the Americans.

I really wish I had read this book sooner. This book feels dated to the early years of the Bush administration war drums are beginning to beat in the US and over seas. The events of the Iraq war and the debt market crisis feels like plot twists, obstructing any resolution that was proposed. While it is easy to that Mr. Kagan's analysis is right (the historical divergences between Europe and the US has left the former a internal-looking state benefiting from might of the latter) the current crises at home and at war has me wondering who ended up better off from this relationship. Kagan's prognosis that Europe should expand its own military self defense for both its own benefit and America's just does not seem feasible any more considering fiscal austerity. With American military spending compatibly shrinking as the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan wind-down, it seems as if Europe is going to have more relative regional military power but only as the US wanes. I had mixed feelings as I read that I was bouncing between up to date analysis to data from a history textbook. The world has changed but book is still interesting to read as picture of what could have been. ( )

Robert Kaganin mielestä Euroopan ja Amerikan poliittinen ero on tosiasia, sillä Eurooppa on Venuksesta ja Yhdysvallat Marsista. Kirjassaan Paratiisin vartijat amerikkalainen tutkija ja kolumnisti Robert Kagan katsoo, että Euroopan unionin rauhanprojekti on ollut mahdollinen vain, koska Yhdysvallat on sheriffi, joka hoitaa likaiset työt myös eurooppalaisten puolesta. Rauhan paratiisissaan eurooppalaiset voivat sulkea silmänsä muualla maailmassa vallitsevalta hobbesilaiselta kaikkien sodalta kaikkia vastaan, koska tietävät, että tarvittaessa amerikkalaiset laittavat rikolliset, terroristit ja roistovaltiot kuriin.

Kirjan ansiot: Kirja on tiivis johdatus amerikkalaiseen uuskonservatiiviseen ajattelutapaan Euroopasta. ( )
