The Internal Fabric of Western Security

By Gregory Flynn and others
Allanheld, Osmun (for the Atlantic Institute for International Affairs), 1981
250 pp. $32.50

The product of a multinational study, this is an ambitious and in many ways unique book. The authors seek to examine the relationship between internal economic, socio-cultural and political factors in the four most important European members of the Atlantic Alliance and their external security strategies and perspectives. This not-so-easy task is well done in four good case studies. These are then woven by the editor into a broader cloth dealing with Alliance-wide issues. Altogether, a challenging research project, accomplished with skill and sophistication, which should be of considerable value to students of Atlantic affairs.
