Trump has rattled the transatlantic relationship, but is he as anomalous as he’s made out to be? In Paradise Lost (2019), Ben Haddad argues that the trends pulling America away from a position of liberal hegemony buttressing Europe’s security infrastructure are older and more profound. In it, he calls for Europe to wake up to a new world order marked by the return of History and grow its own strategic autonomy. A former senior fellow at the Hudson Institute and advisor to presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron, Ben is currently director of the Future Europe Initiative at the Atlantic Council in Washington D.C. Through his own journey and work, Ben encapsulates the kind of transatlantic conversation that Uncommon Decency will work to spark.
