At a time of change and challenge in the transatlantic relationship, the North Atlantic Assembly formed a special presidential committee to conduct a study of NATO's future. All of the committee's recomendations are aimed at promoting changes within the alliance and its policies to ensure that NATO continues to serve member countries in the future.

Choice Review

The book consists of two parts. The first section, a report on what the NATO alliance can and must do to meet the challenges of the future, was written by the Committee on NATO in the 1990s and commissioned by the president of the North Atlantic Assembly. Between 1986 and 1988, this group of more than a dozen politicians and experts held hearings and performed an in-depth examination of major issues. The policy paper that resulted is an important statement on the future evolution of the alliance, emphasizing most notably the development of a stronger European pillar. The second part of the book is an edited collection of articles on NATO written by widely respected academic authorities and former policymakers. These articles place the Committee's recommendations in historical perspective and provide further individual analyses and suggestions for the future, particularly in the area of arms control. The collection is valuable for those doing research on the NATO at the graduate level. -A. K. Cronin, University of Maryland
