About the Book

The Cold War is over, the Soviet Union is gone, and America faces no other great-power threat to its security. Yet Washington continues to spend $90 billion a year on the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. In Beyond NATO: Staying Out of Europe's Wars, Ted Galen Carpenter argues that the United States needs to adopt an entirely new policy toward Europe. He contends that preserving NATO is unnecessary because the West European nations now have the economic and military resources to protect their own security.
