Transatlantic relations seem to be slowly recovering from an unprecedented rift caused by conflict over Iraq and other issues. Even so, this transatlantic divide both between governments and within societies in Europe and America stretches far beyond international politics into the realm of culture. Anti-Americanism is still visible in Europe, as are accusations of cultural imperialism, but at the same time American popular culture is as successful as ever. While European and American affairs remain closely intertwined, their future relationship thus appears uncertain. Is the United States Europe's Other and vice versa? In this volume, experts from several academic disciplines examine the state of affairs from various angles. The articles focus on political norms and philosophical ideas, the significance of religion, Anti-Americanism, the impact of immigration and ethnicity, the role of art and literature, as well as the concepts of transnationalism and creolization. This study offers some new insights and hopes to promote further debate on the many fascinating aspects of the transatlantic dialogue.
