In the 1980s, Western European nations have been more successful in co-operating on security policy than ever before. Challenges from both the Soviet Union and the United States have triggered new approaches to the old problem of a distinct European defence - among them the European answer to President Reagan's SDI concept, the Western European Union, and European suggestions for East-West arms control negotiations. This book presents the combined research of a group of European and American scholars who evaluate the scope and substance of present-day security co-operation among West European nations.
