Two studies by specialists. Haglund, a good Canadian scholar, argues that a "Carolingian" core of France and Germany has been hard to swallow for those excluded-Britain in particular-or seemed unnecessary in the burst of enthusiasm for pan-European arrangements. His argument puts a finger on the lack of serious west European cooperation in security matters-a lack encouraged by American policy and that now seems distressingly evident in the Yugoslav crisis. Laird's book is a wide-ranging collection of essays by an American who knows Europe well and who systematically interviews European officials and observers.
