Full Synopsis
Fractured Continent is an urgent examination of how the political and social volatility in Europe impacts the United States and the rest of the world.

The dream of a United States of Europe is unraveling in the wake of several crises now afflicting the continent. The single Euro currency threatens to break apart amid bitter arguments between rich northern creditors and poor southern debtors. Russia is back as an aggressive power, annexing Crimea, supporting rebels in eastern Ukraine, and waging media and cyber warfare against the West. Marine Le Pen's National Front won a record thirty-four percent of the French presidential vote despite the election of Emmanuel Macron. Europe struggles to cope with nearly two million refugees who fled conflicts in the Middle East and North Africa. Britain has voted to leave the European Union after forty-three years, the first time a member state has opted to quit the world's leading commercial bloc. At the same time, President Trump has vowed to pursue America First policies that may curtail U.S. security guarantees and provoke trade conflicts with its allies abroad.

"A timely, useful study of how the new reality of a 'post-Washington Europe' may revive old demons of nationalism." ---Kirkus

“This is the best book I've read on the recent turmoil sweeping through Europe-excellent reporting, beautifully written and sensibly, carefully analyzed." ---Marvin Kalb, senior advisor to the Pulitzer Center and Murrow Professor Emeritus at Harvard University

“This bracing and urgently needed account of a continent-indeed a world-undergoing seismic change should be read by all who care about the trans-Atlantic alliance." ---Kati Marton, author of True Believer: Stalin's Last American Spy

“A compelling and urgent alert that Europe’s creation of a peaceful community in place of a warring continent may be unraveling." ---James Hoge, senior advisor, Teneo Intelligence
