Since the Libya War in 2011 it has been widely suggested that NATOs role in US security policy has diminished, because Washington gives Europe less & Asia more strategic priority (a tendency that is reinforced by budget restraints), & because the US is no longer interested in always leading NATO activities that mainly concern European conditions.
Several experts have suggested that the US expect that the European security challenges primarily should be h&led by NATOs European allies in a new transatlantic burden sharing model, & that the US role should principally be Article V-focused. This book investigates to what extent these claims are valid, & what consequences they may have for European & international security.
