American Visions of Europe sets three learned and elegantly written portraits against the background of the dramatic events and foreign policy controversies of the twentieth century. John Lamberton Harper's careful examination of three men and their policies--Roosevelt's partial internationalism, aiming at the retirement of Europe from world politics while avoiding American entanglement; Kennan's partial isolationism, aspiring to restore Europe's centrality and autonomy through temporary American engagement; and Acheson's accommodating interventionism, establishing the United States as a permanent power in Europe--creates a new and unique look at the "American Century" through its most prominent protagonists.

Book Description:

Three elegantly written portraits are set against the background of the dramatic events and foreign policy controversies of the twentieth century. The text examines Roosevelt's partial internationalism, Kennan's partial isolationism, and Acheson's accommodating interventionism.

From the Back Cover:

The problem of internecine conflict in Europe dominated the thoughts of American statesmen during the four decades after 1914. This study in the varieties of modern American experience of Europe traces the development of three distinct personal answers to the question of what to do with Europe.
