Zerfallserscheinungen

"Für US-Politanalyst William Drozdiak muss der Westen eine neue grosse Mission finden, sonst drohe ein weiteres Auseinanderdriften. Ein Gespräch über Zerfallserscheinungen in Europa und den USA, Putins falsche Strategie und die Schweiz als Vorbild." Migros Magazin

A timely, useful study

"What former Washington Post chief European correspondent Drozdiak sees as the noble European experiment of a united democratic order since the end of the Cold War—undergirded by the three initiatives of the expansion of NATO, the creation of the euro, and passport-free travel within Europe—seems now to be imploding from within. What happened? (...) A timely, useful study of how the new reality of a 'post-Washington Europe' may revive old demons of nationalism." Kirkus Reviews

Impressively concise

"Drozdiak, former Washington Post chief European correspondent, ably lays out current threats to the European Union’s cohesion while making clear that its demise would cancel out the 'extraordinary achievements' made by late-20th-century European leaders. (...) In an impressively concise and clear volume, Drozdiak shows there are many routes to disaster, but no clear path to success." Publishers Weekly

Finger on the pulse

"At times this didn't feel like the kind of Europe I recognise - even with Brexit it seems in general like a more positive place than the book describes. Having said that, William Drozdiak comes across as well-travelled, well-connected and well-informed, with his finger on the pulse. My free proof copy (thanks to Norton for this) is already very slightly out-of-date, but will presumably be reworked for its final version. The writing is clear and interesting, and the arguments are put well." Goodreads

No better guide

"To get a broad sense of Europe’s predicament, there is perhaps no better guide than William Drozdiak’s 'Fractured Continent'. Drozdiak, a former chief European correspondent for The Washington Post, crisscrosses the region from Berlin to London, Paris to Brussels, Madrid to Rome, Warsaw to Copenhagen, and Riga to Athens, with jaunts to Moscow, Ankara and Tunis, ending with a final trip to Washington." Washington Post
