NEW LINDLEY-FRENCH BOOK; NATO: THE ENDURING ALLIANCE 2015
Dear Friend and Colleague,
it is with pleasure I announce the publication by Routledge of my latest book NATO: The Enduring Alliance 2015. The book is a complete re-write and update of my successful 2007 edition. The focus of the book is NATO's place in the twenty-first century world and consideration of the impact of the Afghanistan campaign on the Alliance. However, the backbone of the book is a fast-paced telling of NATO's story since its founding in 1949 against the backdrop of contemporary change.
The book consdiers in depth the impact of the financial crisis on the Alliance and explores the evolving relationship between NATO and the EU. Critically, the book confronts squarely the strategic implications of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. The book also looks to the strategic future of NATO in a dangerous world faced not just by Moscow's challenge but American over-stretch and the murderous Islamists of ISIS. The book concludes by confirming the continuing importance of the Alliance not just to European security and defence but the security and well-being of the wider world.
To be honest, I am proud of this book as I put a lot into re-writing and updating it. Indeed, with a Foreword by former SACEUR Admiral (Retd.) James T. Stavridis NATO: The Enduring Alliance 2015 is a new book on the Alliance which I have the honour to offer to you. The book is available via Amazon and/or Routledge web-sites.
