Continental Drift

Public Policy and Management Continental Drift: Why are the Ties that Bind Europe to the U.S. Unraveling?
The geopolitical map of the world is changing and, according to Jeremy Rifkin's latest book, The European Dream: How Europe's Vision of the Future Is Quietly Eclipsing the American Dream, the most dramatic developments may well occur in Europe.

The "American Dream," says Rifkin, "is losing its cachet ... casting the American people adrift."
