America remains a powerful country, but in a new era in which American economic, political and global leadership has lost some of its direction and appeal, Europe has stepped into the breach. Yet you would never know that if you receive your information from the American media.
The New Yorker's Hendrik Hertzberg strongly recommends the book, writing: "Like a reverse Alexis de Tocqueville, Steven Hill dauntlessly explores a society largely unknown to his compatriots back home. Sweeping away the ideological posturing, he shows us exactly how the modern European Way works and the promise it holds for an America which has slipped to become, in terms of social, economic and energy policy, the Old World."
Parag Khanna, author of The Second World: Empires and Influence in the New Global Order, says: "Steven Hill ends the transatlantic debate over which economic and political system is superior: Europe wins. While America and China fight for oil and minerals, Europe already achieves more with less. Indeed, the path to the American Dream is the European Way."
And Ralph Nader plugs the book, writing, "Europe's Promise should startle, inform, and galvanize Americans in raising the ante in favor of a political economy where people matter first." ORDER
