Overview

The end of the Cold War raises important questions about the future of NATO. A series of events has transformed the political landscape of Europe and erased the original rationale for the Alliance - the defence of Western Europe from an aggressive totalitarian enemy. Can NATO survive in a vastly altered political and strategic environment? Indeed, should the Alliance survive, or is it an anachronism in the post-Cold War era? The eight contributors to The Future of NATO are among the most knowledgeable experts in international affairs, and they offer a variety of perspectives and policy prescriptions.
