"Recommended at all levels."—Choice

"An excellent survey of national debates on nato enlargement in a well-chosen set of countries.... This book provides invaluable guidance for pondering whether, when, and how to proceed to that mooted second round of enlargement."—David G. Haglund, Queen's University

DESCRIPTION

Thoroughly examining the deliberations over nato enlargement in twelve countries—five current members of the alliance; three invited to join in the first round of enlargement; two seeking membership; and Russia and Ukraine, both involved with nato, but unlikely to join—the authors shed light on the political motives leading to each country's position. Their comparative analysis explores the interaction of domestic and international issues that is at the core of efforts to reshape the security map of Europe.
