This title was first published in 2002. This detailed examination of the role of the Transatlantic Alliance in support of the America-led military and intelligence operations against the Taliban and the Al-Qaida network since the terrorist attacks on the United States provides the first in-depth analysis of NATO's historic first invocation of Article V of the Washington Treaty. Including a substantial overview of NATO's place in the broad security framework of the Western Atlantic powers and both the shared history and ideals that form its common basis, the book specifically analyzes the political machinations behind the decision to invoke Article V and the impact of political differences among the Alliance partners. The book also looks at efforts to prevent future incidents by expanding the security framework of the Alliance. An essential reference source for military and foreign policy academics, courses and practitioners, this text offers the reader an unprecedented insight into NATO's response to this most significant event.


’…an opportune and telling evaluation of a complicated topic…Dr. Lansford's study is a sophisticated, exhaustive analysis of the NATO Alliance's role in the global war on terror…will repay a close reading by the scholar and the general reader alike.’ Henry E. Mattox, Ed. American Diplomacy ’…All for One comes highly recommended. Tom Lansford has captured the essence of the emerging debate…offering a timely, thoughtful voice on this momentous event…a well-written and balanced account …quite rare…’ Robert P. Watson, Florida Atlantic University, USA ’Lansford offers an invaluable contribution to political and military history. Highly recommended.’ Choice ’…this is an excellent book: clearly and logically framed, relentlessly policy-oriented and sound and sensible in its recommendations with scarcely a wasted sentence in 188 pages…it is presumably required reading in the US capital.’ Contemporary Security Policy ’[Tom Lansford] is to be strongly commended for pulling together the mass of details required to analyse NATO’s response to 9/11 and the details of transatlantic relations as the US sought to generate a coalition and mount the military operation in Afghanistan, and for setting them out in a coherent manner in support of his analysis.’ International Affairs ’…comes highly recommended…it is both original and timely… ’ White House Studies
