This book focuses on domestic factors of U.S. foreign policy, and can thus provide explanation why the United States, in spite of all transatlantic rhetoric, have repeatedly taken decisions which neglect important interests of the Allies. The book contains contributions from American and European scholars about SALT II, Euro-American differences of interest in questions of defense and security, about US energy policy and its effects on Europe, about US trade policy and about the position of american multinational corporations.
