The shifting global security and defense landscape of the post-Cold War era has led the West to reexamine regional priorities and existing international institutions. Many scholars have written on how best to coordinate policy on the security of Central Europe and the states of the former Soviet Union, and on reforming NATO and the OSCE. Very few scholars, however, have prescribed policy for transatlantic cooperation toward threats that transcend Europe and NATO, especially in the Middle East.Many transatlantic security concerns in the coming decades will originate not in Europe, but in the Greater Middle East, which encompasses the area from the Maghreb to the Caspian basin. The volume juxtaposes essays from U.S. and European scholars on selected areas and issues: the Arab-Israeli peace process, the Persian Gulf, Turkey and the Caspian Basin, Islamic extremism, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, and military force projection. Each author considers American and European strategies toward a particular issue and makes suggestions for future policy collaboration between the countries on both sides of the Atlantic.Contributors : Robert D. Blackwill, Richard Falkenrath, Lawrence Freedman, Graham Fuller, Richard Haass, Francois Heisbourg, Geoffrey Kemp, Heinz Kramer, Richard Kugler, F. Stephen Larrabee, Remy Leveau, Friedemann Muller, Volker Perthes, Johannes Reissner, Eberhard Rhein, Robert Satloff, Joanna Spear, Michael Sturmer.
