"David Yost's comprehensive and objective examination of NATO's evolution since the Cold War, its contemporary accomplishments and shortfalls, and its long-term challenges will serve as an invaluable reference for government and military officials, academics, media, and the broader public interested in international relations. He makes a convincing case that if NATO did not exist, we would have to invent it."
