A quiet revolution has been occurring in post-World War II Europe. A world power has emerged across the Atlantic that is recrafting the rules for how a modern society should provide economic security, environmental sustainability, and global stability. For a decade Steven Hill traveled widely to understand this uniquely European way of life. In his new book, Europe's Promise: Why the European Way is the Best Hope in an Insecure Age, Mr. Hill explains Europe's bold new vision, and how Europe has taken the lead in this make-or-break century challenged by a worldwide economic crisis and global climate change.Europe's Promise shatters myths and shows how Europe's leadership manifests in several major areas: economic strength, with Europe now the world's largest trading bloc, producing nearly a third of the worlds economy, almost as large as the U.S. and China combined; a social capitalism which fosters a more broadly shared prosperity, including the best health care and other social supports for families and individuals; widespread use of renewable energy and conservation technologies; and a smart power foreign policy built around regional networks of trade, foreign aid, and investment that link one-third of the world to the European Union.
