"This book combines a study of NATO strategy with an extensive analysis of the interests of a single member of the alliance. The book has two main themes: the relationship - and at times the lack of relationship - between politics and strategy in the nuclear age; and the tension between the prevailing doctrines of NATO strategy and the special interests of one of the leading NATO members, Germany. Although political and strategic considerations need to be intimately connected, the author shows that in practice these two considerations may pull in different directions and that policy often fails to link them effectively."; 7¾" - 9¾" Tall
