Americans and Europeans are divided by more than an ocean when
it comes to designing and carrying out policies toward countries
that repress human rights, develop weapons of mass destruction,
and/or support terrorism and subversion. Accounting for this divide
are distinct interests, domestic politics, and above all profound
disagreements between Americans and their counterparts in European
capitals and Brussels over what tools of foreign policy--sanctions,
engagement, military force--to empty to change the behavior of
problem countries. The result is that Americans and Europeans often
work at cross purposes--and that disagreements over policy toward
problem countries threaten both to undermine efforts that promote
desired change and transatlantic cooperation in other areas, be it
within Europe or in building an open world trading system. This
book examines the "problem" countries of Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya,
and Nigeria. The authors explain sources of American and European
differences, consequences for policies designed to influence
problem states, and prospects for bridging transatlantic policy
rifts. A conclusion by Richard N. Haass places these differences in
perspective and suggests what Europe and the United States need to
do to ameliorate this tension--and what could transpire if they do
