Atlantic Community in Crisis: A Redefinition of the Transatlantic Relationship focuses on the findings of a project on the variety of strains that affected the Atlantic Community, completed by the Institute for Foreign Policy Analysis under an original grant from the Fritz-Thyssen-Stiftung, Cologne, the Federal Republic of Germany. The selection first offers information on the conceptual history of the Atlantic Community, as well as Atlantic confederation and partnership, European Union, problem of political will, and the Nixon doctrine and Atlantic partnership. The book also examines the movement toward a new North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) consensus. Topics include divergences in the NATO, military-political balance in Europe, and criteria for an improved NATO position. The manuscript reviews the U.S.-European strategic linkage and the shifting Euro-Atlantic military balance. Considerations include Soviet measures to sever the transatlantic linkage; Soviet-Warsaw Pact military doctrine and force posture; and Soviet theater doctrine and European attack strategy. The text also takes a look at U.S.-European technological collaboration and defense technology and the Atlantic-modes of collaboration, as well as political challenge and Finlandization and monetary policies in the Atlantic Community. The book is a vital reference for readers interested in the issues that affect the Atlantic Community.
