Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Examines the region's complex security challenges from a long-term perspective. Early chapters provide a framework of general insights and theories on power relations, historical and geopolitical factors, worldviews, and political culture. Later chapters deal with regional policies of specific governments, and focus on intergovernmental institutions, especially those of the Nordic countries and the European Union, along with the WEU. A concluding chapter examines issues in light of three philosophical traditions in the study of international politics. Distributed by ISBS. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknew.com)
