Since the end of the Cold War, U.S. relations with Europe have charted a new course, influenced especially by the dissolution of the Warsaw Pact, the expansion of NATO, and the growing strength of the European Union. This volume analyzes U.S. interactions with Britain, France, Germany, Spain, Russia, Poland, and Ukraine, and examines the new role for NATO and the evolving dynamics in the U.S.-EU partnership. Through their assessment of mutual perceptions, evolving interests, and clashing agendas, the contributors offer a fresh and thoughtful exploration of the U.S. relationship with the major European states.

The term district heating refers to a system of centralised heat production and distribution, typically for urban areas. This publication examines the benefits of district heating, particularly for transition economies, in terms of economic development, environmental aspects, energy security and sustainability, as well as considering policy options and priorities that individual countries can adapt to their own needs. Although it focuses on the countries of the former Soviet Union, Central and South East Europe, the discussion of policy issues can be applied in many other OECD countries.

This book offers a wide-ranging account of the emerging issues of international politics in the Artic, and the emerging Geopolitical debates that surround the region. In this thorough but accessible book covering environmental issues, the author examines the Geopolitics of emerging land and resource disputes and the rise of both nationalist and pan-Arctic movements in the region. Whereas existing literature on the politics of the Arctic tends to focus either on the environment or on Geopolitical interests, this book considers both of these themes in addition to the politics of the region’s indigenous peoples and provides an overview on the emerging issues of international politics in the Arctic. The book makes full use of pedagogic features such as maps, diagrams, timelines, biographies and boxes highlighting key concepts and issues in order to make this an accessible book for both students and scholars alike. This book will be of interest to students and scholars of International Relations, Arctic Politics, Environmental Politics and European Politics.
Alpine ski champion Dane - Danger - Hollister does not do relationships, though he has an excellent reason. No woman would ever say "I do" to a guy whose faulty DNA will eventually cost him everything: his spot on the U.S. ski team, his endorsements and the ability to fly downhill at ninety miles per hour. While Willow Reade moved to rural Vermont to get back to the land, that wasn't meant to include a night stranded in her vehicle during a blizzard. Luckily, the hot ski racer she practically ran off the road has granola bars and a sleeping bag and is happy to share. Maybe it's the close quarters, maybe it's the snow, but soon the two are sharing a lot more than conversation. Yet neither can guess how their spontaneous passion will uncork Dane's ugly secret and Willow's tentative peace with her own choices. Only their mutual trust and bravery can end the pain and give Willow and Dane a shot at hard-won happiness. "A deeply romantic story that warms with slow-burn eroticism and genuine insight into loss and love. Sarina Bowen's debut glows with intelligence and a lovely sweetness." - Mary Ann Rivers, author of Live.
