When the Soviet Union collapsed and the Berlin Wall fell, it seemed the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) would follow suit. After all, President Eisenhower considered NATO temporary, and its charge to help defend Europe from Soviet aggression was moot. However, US administrations following the fall of the wall supported the continuous existence of NATO and even expanded it eastwards in peacekeeping missions. Commentator Douglas, whose background as a military officer and supporter of security and democratic elections in Europe, describes the evolution of relations between the US and NATO during the post-Soviet transition from a military and political defender to a trans-Europe and even extra-Europe focus. He evaluates the costs of US military reductions and additions, the development of new approaches by the US to NATO in the 1990s, the nature of US support for an expanded NATO, and American strategies for membership in NATO after the Cold War.
