the civilized–barbarians binary that was to dominate the scene until 1914: the ‘civilized Christians’ as opposed to the Muslim ‘barbarian Other’, with the latter prone to committing slaughters and atrocities. The massacres of Muslims were swept under the carpet, as if the Muslim victims of the Christians were less human. 179 Last but not least is the role played by civil society across Europe and in North America in spurring intervention on humanitarian

believed that democratic states would endure into the future only if they offered each other mutual assistance as they had done during the course of the Second World War; this time under the umbrella of the North American Treaty Organization (NATO) that had been designed to counter the communist menace. Robert Palmer, unlike other promoters of the concept of an Atlantic Community, made no specific mention of NATO in his publications and advanced his moralizing project not by exhortation but by studying, and illuminating, examples from the past

Contemporary developments as of early 2017, at a moment when this chapter is revised, must challenge the perspective that seemed appropriate when it was originally drafted over five years ago. To anticipate our conclusion, they do not make Transatlantic History less fruitful a pursuit, but they do suggest that the insights it generates should serve to open up even wider geographical frameworks for research. Transatlantic History has usefully helped scholars to transcend North-American particularism, but in turn, I will suggest, it should

Then, it was clearly defined to include only the territory of the member states in Europe and North America and the waters surrounding them. Since the end of the Cold War, NATO has officially adopted the notion that it has an

Second, the expansion of Catholic anti-communist groups and ideologies, particularly following the founding in the early 1930s of the Vatican’s transnational Secretariat on Atheism, which produced printed propaganda and travelling exhibitions highlighting the inherently transatlantic ambitions of the Soviet Union. Third, the increased migration of European Catholics to North America, particularly as a result of political unrest in Italy, Germany, and Austria. And fourth, the

Indeed, for Simon Dalby, the intellectual disorientation in North America about the future order is compellingly illustrated in various striking claims from ‘clash of civilizations’ by Samuel Huntington to ‘a new geopolitical game in the global chessboard’ by Zbigniew Brzezinski, ‘the coming anarchy
