The US was a dominant actor in the European integration game in the 1950s, although not normally a formal participant at the negotiation table. The Americans promoted integration based on Franco-German reconciliation and sought to prevent the emergence of nationally controlled nuclear weapons in Germany and France and developments toward an independent European 'Third Force'. Based on material from American, British, French and German archives the book covers the negotiations about the European Defence Community, the Western European Union and Euratom/the Common Market.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'[A]n essential read for any serious scholars of European integration.' - English Historical Review

'The United States and the Nuclear Dimension of European Integration is an excellent survey and synthesis of the interplay of economic and security motives in the negotiations leading into the Common Market and Euratom...Skogmar has done a great service to both expert and graduate-level readers alike.' - Juhana Aunesluoma - Cooperation and Conflict

'Skogmar's own views and conclusions emerge clearly both from his excellent introduction to the book and from its short and equally clear concluding chapter. But he grinds no axes. He is scrupulous in basing his analysis on fact and not speculation; and the facts are extracted from an exceptionally wide range of sources, published and unpublished.' Michael Pallier, International Affairs

'It is impossible to do justice to the depth and complexity of Skogmar's arguments in a brief review.' John W. Young, Cold War History

'Gunnar Skogmar's commendable and exhaustive monograph is based upon extensive use of French, German, US, and British primary sources. It offers an in-depth knowledge of practically all the relevant French, German, British, and US published literature and gives numerous insights into the dynamic of atomic politics and economics, and the intrinsic part it played in the European integration process.' - Mervyn O'Driscoll, The International History Review

'...a profound study of the nuclear dimension of European integration.' Klaus Larres, The Journal of American History

'[Skogmar] fills a gap in existing research with his meticulous, multi-archival and multinationally-based analysis.' - Poul Villaume, Historisk Tidsskrift
