While some on the one hand emphasize the respective special way, others saw America and Europe on similar paths. This view was particularly pronounced in the decades after 1945, when the U.S. came to be at the height of its influence. Since the end of the Cold War and since September 11th, transatlantic differences are again emphasized. This volume contributes to the objectification of the debate by historicizing the European-American game of mutual observations and competitions. For generalizations mask Inter-American multiplicities and differences. On the other hand, specific differences are identified using empirical comparative studies, such as, for example, an analysis of welfare systems and legal cultures. German text.
