This volume examines the implications of U.S. defense transformation for NATO, particularly how America and its allies can close the "transatlantic transformation gap" - a looming breach in strategic orientation, spending priorities, conceptual and operational planning and training. It examines European approaches to defense transformation. It profiles the progress made by the Alliance from Kosovo to Kabul - and shows how far it still has to go.
The authors in this volume approach the issue of NATO transformation from different perspectives. They offer different - and sometimes conflicting - prescriptions. As a whole, however, their argument is straightforward. If Alliance transformation is to be successful it must include but also go beyond the purely military dimension. NATO must transform its scope and strategic rationale, its capabilities, its partnerships, its very ways of doing business. They offer a range of policy prescriptions for the NATO Summit in Istanbul and beyond.
