France, America and the World

A New Era in Franco-American Relations?

Edited by Daniel S. Hamilton and Michel Foucher

Changes in French and American domestic politics, together with dramatic upheavals on the international scene, offer both opportunities and challenges for a fresh start in the bilateral relationship between France and the United States. In this volume authors and practitioners from both countries offer their perspectives on joint challenges in areas ranging from global economic and security issues to questions of stability in the Middle East, the Mediterranean, and Africa, as well as relations with Russia. The book includes recommendations for a more effective bilateral partnership.
