Book Description

30 Jan 2013
The question of burden sharing has always been important for NATO, but this holds acute relevance today as the US cuts its defence budget over a ten-year period and is no longer willing to lead military operations.
In a current situation of economic austerity and postmodern political values, this book considers whether Europe can play a key role in regional and global security and defence. When the US signals that its lead role is no longer automatic, what about the European Allies? Can they and will they undertake sharp operations on their own, assuming leading roles? Which of NATO's European allies are able militarily, and willing politically, to undertake sharp operations and to actually use force for the purpose of policy?
This edited collection considers the important drivers for the use of force, namely history, political culture, economy and threat perceptions, and scrutinises these in the context of eight European NATO countries: the UK, France, Germany, Spain, Poland, Hungary, Denmark and Norway. A range of international scholars discuss the crucial future role of European Allies and the impact this will have upon policy and scholarship on NATO.

Product Description

Review

"The first thing that should be said [about this book] is that it represents a remarkably coherent set of essays that bear all the hallmarks of tight and effective editorial control. It poses the central question of what role Europe can play in regional and global security and defence, and couches its analysis in terms of both military ability and the political willingness to use force. Above and beyond this, it seeks explanations of Europe's ability to play such a role, both at the international level and domestically, in the form of politics, ideology, military and strategic culture, and military capacity." - "International Affairs"
