At a time of unprecedented turmoil in the transatlantic
relationship, this book addresses a number of the key security
challenges that confront decision-makers on both sides of the
Atlantic. The contributors examine the widening divergences in
Western threat perceptions and investigate religiously motivated
terrorism as both a socio-political phenomenon and as a security
threat. The risks and unique challenges posed by the proliferation
of Weapons of Mass Destruction are examined and the viability of
new arms control and disarmament regimes to tackle these dangers is
assessed. Finally, the book examines what the impact of the
post-9/11 security environment has been on the evolution of both
NATO and the European Security System. The book explores whether
NATO is losing or radically changing its traditional role of
collective defence organization after the war in Iraq. Will the war
on terrorism reinvigorate NATO, or will it merely become a
convenient military 'toolbox' for the United States to dip into to
construct 'coalitions of the willing'? The book also examines what
the future prospects are for creating an effective and worthwhile
European Security and Defence Policy that would enable Europe to
play a full international role as partners of the US.
