Fine, 1st edition uncreased, unread glossy paperback. 293 p. The conditions existing in 1949 that made the Atlantic Alliance necessary have changed dramatically over the forty years since. Then, it seemed that only American power could shelter Europe, devastated by World War II, from the grasp of the Soviet Union; Communism appears on the brink of sweeping all of the Continent. Today, the Soviet Union not only has lost control of the Eastern bloc but also is shifting itself toward a free market economy and Western-style democracy. If East-West tension was the cement that held NATO together, will East-West detente lead to the alliance crumbling? In NATO after forty Years, distinguished scholars from seven nations provide various perspectives on the alliance's history and current status, its significance in the present world, and the possibilities for its future role in world affairs.
