Fractured Continent - William Drozdiak

Staff Pick

Drawing on decades of experience in Europe, initially as a journalist and later in the nonprofit world, William Drozdiak examines the unraveling of the dream of a united European order. While this dream had been fostered by such post-Cold War developments as the expansion of NATO and the creation of the Euro, it’s now being eroded by a range of challenges, including Britain’s move to leave the EU, the refugee surge and backlash to it, Russian aggression, and the renewed strength of authoritarian, populist, and nationalist alternatives. Compounding matters, the Trump administration is pursuing an America First agenda that calls into question U.S. security guarantees and existing trade pacts and is straining ties with European allies. In Fractured Continent, Drozdiak provides a concise, engaging narrative of how the threat to European cohesion is being experienced differently in each European capital.
