Political Options and Obstacles

  • Clay Clemens


In their own detailed, at times even passionate, analyses of NATO’s possible venture into uncharted territory, this volume’s contributors reflect the wide array of opinions about ‘functional’ and above all ‘geographical’ enlargement. On the latter concept in particular, differences among proponents or among opponents often seem as great as those between the two camps, for this debate cuts across other, more familiar schools of thought, at times making for strange political bedfellows.
