About this book


NATO - The First 50 Years offers the first comprehensive study of the institution's activities and development over the past five decades. Written by a team of international scholars, it analyses the factors which have made NATO the most successful politico-military alliance in history. It also addresses the perennial problems of transatlantic relationships, the problems that the Alliance grapples with today. A wide-ranging and masterful survey, NATO-The First 50 Years will be a useful reference work for researchers as well as an accessible guide for students.
