A History of NATO - The First Fifty Years offers the first comprehensive study of the institution's activities and development over the past five decades. Written by a team of international scholars, it analyses the factors which have made NATO the most successful politico-military alliance in history. It also addresses the perennial problems of transatlantic relationships, the problems that the Alliance grapples with today. A wide-ranging and masterful survey, A History of NATO-The First Fifty Years will be an indispensable reference work for researchers as well as an accessible guide for students. The 3 volumes contain the work of over sixty contributors including articles from Lawrence S. Kaplan, Michael J. Brenner, Christopher Coker, John English, J.L. Granatstein, Bruce Kuniholm, Olav Riste, Kori Schaker, Klaus Schwabe and Rolf Tamnes.
