About The Book
WHAT’S REALLY BEHIND THE WAR BETWEEN FRANCE AND THE U.S.?
It’s the most famous headline of the new century: « We Are All Americans. »
And indeed, when Le Monde editor Jean-Marie Colombani wrote that headline — on September 12, 2001 — it seemed that, amidst tragedy, Europe and the US. had become closer than at any time since World War II. Leading the remarkable upsurge in affection and support — as symbolized by Colombani’s headline — was America’s oldest ally, France.
Less than a year later much of western Europe was in opposition to the US, and the Franco-American relationship, in particular, had become one of bitter, and at times vitriolic, enmity. Tension escalated rapidly from childish name-calling (« Cheese-eating surrender monkeys ») to the US Congressional cafeteria re-naming French fries « Freedom fries, » to dramatic UN show-downs that froze global politics and kept the entire world on edge.
Is it simply that France opposed the US-led war against Iraq? Or is there something else — something older and more deep-seated — behind the French-American conflict?
In DANGEROUS DE-LIAISONS, a book that takes the unusual form of a conversation, two of the world’s leading newspaper editors — one French, one American — investigate the reasons behind the disintegration of the alliance between the world’s first revolutionary democracies, and analyze the implications of the break-up upon world stability.
With penetrating insight and quick wit, Walter Wells of The International Herald Tribune joins the man who wrote the « We Are All Americans » headline, Le Monde head Jean-Marie Colombani, in a series of increasingly tense — and increasingly absorbing — conversations. The two spar over our long, revolutionary history together … the explosive changes being wrought by terrorism … the rapidly developing economic impact of the emerging European Union … and more … to come into joint focus on the chilling question: Can our two nations once again unite to make the world a better place — or has our war only just begun?
