Overview

This book clarifies the debate about alliance burden sharing and the U.S. commitment to Europe by exploring the political, economic, and military implications of a hypothetical American withdrawal. The contributors first examine the economic costs and benefits of U.S. installations in Europe, as perceived in the U.S. as well as in the host nations. They then analyze the different kinds of military gaps that a withdrawal would generate in the northern, central, and southern regions, as well as the gaps in command, control, communications, and intelligence capabilities. Finally, the essays examine the problems Western Europe would face in trying to cope with an American withdrawal and how the U.S. could fulfill its global commitments without its European bases.
