Chris Patten, one of Europe’s most distinguished statesmen, argues that America’s status as the only superpower must be reined in, but he also warns Europe against too ardently challenging U.S. leadership. Drawing on more than three decades of experience in government and international diplomacy, Chris Patten investigates the relationships among Britain, Europe, and America and how all three must adapt to cope with the economic and political challenges of the twenty-first century.
