Book Description

This book is the concise story of NATO. It considers the origins, development, challenges, structure and direction of the Alliance against the backdrop of a changing world and a changing Europe, the changing relationship of the US to its Allies, the twin threats posed by both Russia and terrorism, the emerging challenge of China and the EU-NATO relationship. Crucially, the book will consider the impact of new and emerging disruptive technologies on NATO planning, force and resources, as well as NATO place in a changing world. Women, peace and security will be discussed, together with NATO’s role in combatting climate change. Central to the book will be a debate over the future of deterrence and defence and the role of nuclear, conventional, cyber and information strategies in a new deterrent posture. The book will conclude by looking out to 2030 and beyond. The world-wide market will include academia, the student body on all aspects of IS, strategic studies, Cold War history, think-tanks, international institutions and interested readers.
