Abstract : For the last two decades, analysts have noted tensions within NATO, especially between the United States and its European allies. The author, a colonel in the West German Air Force, has studied the present disagreements within NATO that began with East-West confrontations outside continental Europe. In this book, he considers how Third World nations have influenced the security and economy of the West. He not only calls for a coordinated foreign policy-a global strategy for the Alliance-but also suggests a means for developing such a strategy and outlines advantages-for Europe, America, and Alliance-of such a joint approach to global security.
