Abstract | Full Text

Mary Nolan’s contribution, which comes from her new book, <em>The Transatlantic Century</em>, accomplishes the impressive feat of turning the historical literature on its head. Instead of adding to the familiar story of European influences on the United States and American culture, she instead reveals the pervasive influence of the United States on European culture, even before the United States became a hegemonic world power.
