Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Defense consultant Cimbala (political science, Pennsylvania State U.) argues that the future of European security will not completely escape the heritage of the Cold war and recent decisions by the great powers, especially the Americans and Russians. The power and policy vacuum left by the collapse of the Soviet Union will shift the fulcrum of conflict eastward, he says, but old and unresolved security issues are taking shape in the dust even as it settles.
