The best work to be published in France on this subject in recent years, this is the first of a series distributing the research activities of the French Institute of International Relations. Given the frequent drawbacks of a compendium volume-there are two dozen authors here-the topics and authors are exceptionally well selected. The contributions by the French are more interesting and original than those of the many other Europeans and Americans, and include an essay by a French communist. Pierre Lellouche's synthesis (and own analysis) is particularly well done. A promised second volume on the "exterior," or North-South dimensions of European security, should be even more interesting.
