Type: Monograph
NATO After Enlargement: New Challenges, New Missions, New Forces. Edited by Dr. Stephen J. Blank.
In 1999 NATO will formally admit three new members and adopt a new strategic concept. In so doing, it will take giant strides towards effecting a revolutionary transformation of European security. On the one hand, it could be said that NATO enlargement closes the immediate post-Cold War period that began with the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989. But on the other hand, enlargement raises a host of serious new issues for the Alliance and for U.S. policymakers that they must begin to address now.

Defining U.S. Atlantic Command's Role in the Power Projection Strategy. Authored by Professor Douglas C. Lovelace, Jr., Dr. Thomas-Durell Young.
The lynch-pin in the power projection strategy of the United States is a completely transformed U.S. Atlantic Command (USACOM). The authors recommend that USACOM should be further transformed into a "Joint Forces Command." Their analysis exposes the need for a significant review of Title 10 of the U.S. Code and a reexamination of some of the fundamental tenets underlying the structure and command.

Reforming NATO's Military Structures: The Long-Term Study and Its Implications for Land Forces. Authored by Dr. Thomas-Durell Young.
Often taken for granted, the Alliance's integrated command structure provides the basis for NATO's collective defense, and increasingly, as seen in Bosnia, its ability to undertake peace support operations. However, the very value by which nations hold the structure has resulted in a difficult and time-consuming reorganization process, which has produced only limited reforms.

Russia's Armed Forces on the Brink of Reform. Authored by Dr. Stephen J. Blank.
Despite over a dozen years of talk, the Soviet and now Russian military has not undergone a true military reform. What did happen was a form of degeneration and disintegration, but not a methodically planned and directed transformation and/or adaptation to new conditions. Consequently, defense policy, in all of its ramifications, has remained essentially unreformed and remains an impediment to Russia's accommodation to today's strategic realities.
