Defending Europe seeks to clarify the competing ambitions, the contrasting visions and the trans-Atlantic tensions related to the recent quest by Europe for autonomy in the sphere of security and defense. Scholars from both sides of the Atlantic explore the development of ESDI within NATO, the revival of the WEU and the launch of the EU's Common European Security and Defense Policy. Among the issues discussed are the Euro-American capabilities gap, concerns regarding decoupling, discrimination, and duplication, and the complications posed by NATO/EU enlargement. Two contrary conclusions debate whether ESDP is more likely to strengthen or undermine the Atlantic Alliance. This informative foray into the trans-Atlantic security and defense issues is a crucial addition to the ongoing dialogue concerning this shifting and evolving relationship.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'The volume succeeds in highlighting the competing ambitions, the contrasting visions and the transatlantic tensions related to the quest by Europe for autonomy in the sphere of security and defence...The verdict on the European security and defence policy as well as that on the future of NATO is still ongoing. The book does justice to this ongoing debate. - International Affairs

' [Defending Europe] examines the European Union's current attempts to establish a defence system within the overall security architecture of the Atlantic world...The essays in Defending Europe, provide an expert and dispassionate treatment of the complex issues involved.' - The Economist
