Part of a subseries of the State Department's Foreign Relations of the United States (FRUS) series that documents the most important issues in the foreign policy of the administrations of Richard M. Nixon and Gerald R. Ford, this volume documents U.S. regional and bilateral relations with Western Europe from January 20, 1969 to January 20, 1973.

In this printed volume, you will find highlights of U.S. policy regarding European economic and political integration, U.S. participation in the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), as well as U.S. bilateral relations with Canada, France, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Spain and the United Kingdom.

The first chapter focuses on U.S. policy toward Western Europe and Canada as a whole, with a focus on two key issues that faced the Nixon administration:

1) how to maintain the cohesion of the Atlantic Alliance at a time of reduced tensions with the Soviet Union, and
2) how to respond to the emergence of serious economic tensions among the advanced industrialized nations.

The country chapters in this volume emphasize the key issues that affected each bilateral relationship. Political scientists, historians, foreign policy and international relations scholars, and students pursuing coursework in world history, political science, and international relations may be interested in this historical, primary source volume for research.
