"The European Dream should be required reading on both sides of the Atlantic. To Americans it sounds the alarm. At the height of the supposed unipolar dominance of the US, fewer and fewer foreigners view it as an attractive model for constitutions, companies, communities."

— Andrew Moravcsik, The Financial Times

"Rifkin's book is deeply thought-provoking and optimistic about the future state of the world we live in-something we rarely read or hear these days … At a time when many Americans are feeling increasingly isolated, Rifkin carves out a provocative window for self-reflection and appraisal."

— Negar Akhavi, San Francisco Chronicle

"Rifkin makes a compelling case for [the European] vision, which he says is usurping the American Dream as a global ideal … a fascinating study of the differences between the American and European psyches."

— Pete Engardio, Business Week

"Occasionally, in history, an outside observer is best able to define the spirit of a people. In 1831, the French political philosopher, Alexis de Tocqueville, visited a young America and wrote Democracy in America. De Tocqueville helped Americans understand the American Dream and its importance for the world. Now, an American observer, Jeremy Rifkin, has written a book about the new European Dream which captures the very essence of the great experiment unfolding in Europe and its importance for a globalizing society. Rifkin's book mirrors the European soul, providing us a clear reflection of who we are, and what we stand for and aspire to in the new Europe. The European Dream is a thoughtful and inspiring work."

— Romano Prodi, Prime Minister of Italy and former President of the European Commission

"The real subject of the book [The European Dream] is the need for a new global ethic. Rifkin both makes the case for why we must change and offers detailed suggestions on how we should change. It is an impressive achievement. Rifkin has written an important book."

— Thomas Axworthy, Globe and Mail
