This book explores the forces pushing America away from its democratic friends and neighbors. It examines the underlying forces shaping the democratic states of the West. Individual chapters pose questions such as: Why is religion so powerful in America? How will the flow of immigration shape politics across the West? Why is Europe rejecting America's version of capitalism? How is the media changing in Europe and America? Why are "Conservatives" so different on each side of the Atlantic? And, finally, what do these competing forces portend for the future of the transatlantic relationship?

Jeffrey Kopstein is assistant professor of political science at the University of Colorado at Boulder.
