After an extended period of relative security and certainty, the transatlantic partnership now faces a series of challenges and tests of its stability and reliability. Europe is in the middle of a historic process in which the framework and the factors that determinate foreign policy, as well as the foreign policies themselves, are subject to fundamental change. Similarly, the United States is currently in search of a new role in a changed international environment.

The two studies in Estranged Friends? examine the fundamental foreign policy attitudes of both ordinary citizens and elites on both sides of the Atlantic. In his essay, Max Kaase provides a thorough and precise analysis of the basic social preconditions that underlie the formulation and establishment of a new foreign policy. On the basis of representative surveys, Andrew Kohut provides a detailed and comprehensive description of the attitudes and the values of American citizens and elites with regard to the global role of the United States. Kaase and Kohut stress the necessity for future transatlantic coordination and action; without intensive consultation and cooperation, there is a risk that the mature partnership will relapse to the level of national selfishness.
