About Turn, Forward March with Europe: New Directions for Defence and Security Policy

Overview

This book, written by a group of defence economists and analysts associated with the Defence and Security Programme of the IPPR, argues that Britain must relinquish some military roles and missions. Parts of the armed forces are stretched dangerously thin as a result of recent cuts in British defence commitments.

Overview

This book, written by a group of defence economists and analysts associated with the Defence and Security Programme of the IPPR, argues that Britain must relinquish some military roles and missions. Parts of the armed forces are stretched dangerously thin as a result of recent cuts in British defence commitments. Yet funds are still spent on programmes that are increasingly irrelevant in the post-Cold War era: heavy armed forces and an independent nuclear capability. Successive Tory governments have also resisted any pooling of security policy with Britain's partners in Europe, preferring to take direction from Washington. The book argues that henceforth Britain will be a useful ally to the USA only as part of a strong Europe.
