The critical importance of a new alliance between America and Europe

In a world riven by the threats of radical Islamism and terrorism, and leavened by rapidly emerging new economic powers, the power and influence of the West are under relentless attack. The Western powers need to realize that the achievement of a greater solidarity among them is their best recourse: they must strengthen their ties and join together for common action in the world.

In For a Union of the West, former French prime minister Edouard Balladur argues convincingly that Europe and America must come together in a true economic, political, and moral union if they are to preserve the positive roles of Western civilization in today's changing world. He offers concrete measures for bringing the United States and Europe closer together, including a more stable international monetary system and a transatlantic-Atlantic common market. He asserts that no matter what the issue—be it energy supplies, the environment, or the fight against terrorism—the bond between Europe and the United States must be indivisible if they are to maintain their influence.


Edouard Balladur, prime minister of France from 1993 to 1995, brought about extensive market reforms as minister of the economy in the 1980s. A leader within the Gaullist movement for many decades, he is credited with bringing mainstream French Gaullists back into a pro-European Union stance and abandoning anti-American attitudes.
