Four authors, two European-Karsten Voigt and Lawrence Freedman-and two American-William Hyland and Paul Warnke, explore and explain in separate essays the diversity of views on both sides of the Atlantic. Although all four essays focus on the debate on the deployment of cruise and Pershing II missiles in Europe, they do so as part of a much wider analysis of East-West relations and their implications for nuclear defense and arms control. Much of the public debate since 1979 has suffered from an absence of well-argued analysis. The clear exposition in this book, the first of the Council's new series on European-American relations, will contribute to a significant improvement in the quality of the ongoing discussion.
