This volume takes a specific look at the core security priorities of European states and whether these interests are best served through closer security collaboration with the US or with emerging European structures. It analyzes the contribution each state would make to transatlantic security, the role they envisage for existing security structures such as NATO, and the role the US would play in transatlantic security.
