Abstract:

In this article, the author asserts that it is both wrong and dangerous to believe that security and power no longer motivate the Western European states in their relations with one another. The author provides an overview of Western Europe's political struggle to define its future security arrangements from the middle of 1989 to the end of 1995. Secondly, the author shows how the major state actors (the United States, Britain, France and Germany) used international institutions as tools in their battles with one another to construct these arrangements. Third, the author lays out the compromises through which this political struggle reached resolution and illustrates the role played by the Yugoslav crisis in resolving it.

Fourth and finally, the author draws some policy implications for American foreign policy, arguing that the American military presence remains of central importance for stability in Western Europe.--SCAD summary.
