Future of the American Military Presence in Europe   [open pdf - 609KB]

"The present book is an outgrowth of [a symposium titled 'The Future of U.S. Military Presence in Europe,' held at the University of Chicago on August 4, 1999]. It is not designed to set forth a literal record of words and events in the mold of the traditional symposium 'proceedings,' but rather is organized as an anthology of individual chapters complemented by selected questions, answers, and comments by symposium participants and attendees. The symposium opening address by Deputy Secretary of Defense John Hamre (Chapter 1) and the keynote address by the Supreme Allied Commander Europe General Wesley Clark (Chapter 2) cogently set the stage for discussion. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 address the first panel topic, 'Is Europe Still Strategically Important to the United vii States?' Chapters 6, 7, and 8 tackle the second topic, 'Potential New Missions for NATO in the 21 st Century,' while Chapters 9, 10, and 11 are devoted to the last topic, 'What Type of Deployed Forces Does the United States Require to Meet Its Commitments in Europe?'" Authors include John J. Hamre, Wesley K. Clark, Klaus Naumann, Ted Galen Carpenter, Robert J. Scales Jr., Stephen Larrabee, Charles Glaser, Carl Kaysen, Thomas G. McInerney, Jay Garner, John K. Mearsheimer, and Lloyd J. Matthews.
