How NATO Weakens the West

By Melvyn Krauss
Simon and Schuster 1986 ISBN: 9780671544553

About the Book

Krauss calls the North Atlantic Treaty Orgnaization a "lopsided partnership" and believes that continued European dependence on American protection and weapons is "absurd." The main thrust of his argument is that the removal of U.S. troops and subsidies would increase, not decrease, European, Japanese and South Korean efforts in their own defense (and save the U.S. billions of dollars).
