The contributors to this American Assembly-Atlantik Brücke volume could hardly be more distinguished, ranging from Paul Nitze, a founder of the German-American connection, to Robert Blackwill, who recently managed it. By its nature this nicely edited volume contains more good sense than striking innovation, but there is plenty of insight: Karl Kaiser on "domesticism"-the temptations of both America and Germany to turn inward; Christoph Bertram on the spill-back of troubles in Europe's east to its west, Germany in particular; and Robert Blackwill on the near inevitability that America's influence over Europe's security will wane despite its continuing value.
