Bridging the Atlantic: The Question of American Exceptionalism in Perspective

Publications of the German Historical Institute. Cambridge University Press, 2002.

Bridging the Atlantic discusses comparative developments in modern European and American history. The case studies on British, German, and U.S. history since the eighteenth century assembled here seek to establish an integrated vision of Atlantic history. The contributions by European and American historians challenge the concept of American exceptionalism and present a vivid example of the ongoing debate among American and European historians on the structure and nature of European-American relations.
