Just Another Major Crisis?

Marcin Zaborowski

Oxford University Press

This chapter analyses the increasing diversity within “New Europe.” While it may initially have been true that virtually all the new democracies in Central and Eastern Europe wanted to establish strong relations with the United States, Iraq, EU enlargement, and domestic developments in the various states have gradually produced greater diversity. Poland, by far the biggest country of the region, and the Baltic states continue to emphasize the crucial importance of the American security connection, particularly in view of the new strengthening of Russia. The South-East Europeans (especially Hungary, Slovakia, and Slovenia) are emphasizing their new European orientation. Overall, the chapter concludes that “America had an enormous capital of trust in the region—a considerable share of this was wasted in Iraq.”

Keywords:   Central and Eastern Europe, Poland, United States, Iraq, diversity
