Overview

NATO's military intervention in Yugoslavia highlights the choices and problems confronting the alliance as it approaches the new century. An alliance created to keep Western Europe out of the Soviet orbit during the Cold War has sought to reinvent itself as a "crisis-management" organization to suppress conflicts on Europe's periphery - and perhaps beyond.

Is NATO suited to playing such a role, or is the alliance a Cold War anachronism? How will Russia react to an enlarged NATO focused on out-of-area peacekeeping and conflict-prevention missions? Are there alternative security institutions that might better address Europe's security needs in the post-Cold War era?

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
American scholars of politics and defense, and fellows of various US institutes examine several aspects of the Atlantic alliance as it moves through its sixth decade. Eight essays aspire to become the basis for a debate about the future of Europe's security and of the alliance in the absence of the Soviet threat it was founded to counter. The topics include new strategic concepts, burden-sharing, US hegemony, and the fundamental divergence over proliferation. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c.
