In the post-Cold War period, the United States (US) security relationship with the European Union (EU) is an important subject for analysis. Books on the transatlantic security relationship traditionally focus on the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), the formal alliance arrangement that has guaranteed the defence of Europe. NATO includes amongst its members the states of the EU, but the two organizations are not coterminous and NATO includes non-EU members such as Canada and Turkey. Conversely, books on the US-EU relationship have tended to concentrate on economics because the EU and its forerunner, the European Community (EC), was principally a trading actor. This book is therefore somewhat unusual in its approach, raising the question: can security really be regarded as vital to America’s relationship with the EU?
