Historically, the process of European unification has been supported and furthered in large measures by the USA since the 1950s and Germany, in particular, has been a beneficiary in this process. The US-American support of European unification and its process allowed for and often aided the transformation of long-established historical reservations into new and working partnerships between cultures and countries within Europe and between Europe and the USA. About Iraq, the USA on the one hand and France and Germany on the other hand demonstrated differences in opinion and action. The question presents itself as to whether and in what measure Europe would need US-American support and involvement in its process of unification, including such within the context of international and global affairs. Papers selected represent multi- and inter-disciplinary analysis and discussion of transatlantic cooperation and partnership between countries and cultures of the European Union and the USA in order to respond to issues of current import constructively.
