Abstract:

The nature and purpose of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) are uncertain now that the alliance has accomplished its primary objective of defending Europe from the Soviet Union. Despite the uncertainty of NATO's role in the post-Cold War world, leaders agree that it can still play a vital part in European affairs and international relations. This analysis explores the evolving functions and future directions of this unique organization, paying particular attention to the political cultures and goals of its member states. The Promise of Alliance is important reading for students and scholars of international relations, foreign affairs, and political theory.
