About this book

Reviews

"In this well-crafted volume, Sebastian Mayer has assembled a distinguished group of experts to explore in unprecedented detail how NATO's bureaucracy and decision-making have changed since the cold war and with what implications for transatlantic security."- John S. Duffield, Professor, Georgia State University, USA

"This extraordinary volume brings together many of the top NATO experts from both sides of the Atlantic. It covers the full range of issues, from the history of NATO to its post-Cold War evolution, the role of the Secretary General, relations with NGOs and more. Anyone who wants to understand NATO's transformation must read this book." - James Goldgeier, Professor, American University, USA

"This volume offers an innovative analytical perspective on NATO. Taking the Alliance seriously as a complex institution and administration of security governance, the chapters describe important aspects of NATO's post-Cold War institutional transformation and explore their driving forces and limits of institutional development. Essential reading for anyone interested in understanding how NATO works and in looking beyond the superficial debate on 'NATO's decline'." - Frank Schimmelfennig, Professor, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Switzerland

"This excellent book brings together valuable and path-breaking analyses of the neglected topic of decision-making in NATO, including the Alliance's relations with partner nations and organizations." - David Yost, Professor, U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, USA
