Current French Security Policy: The Gaullist Legacy

Synopsis

This analysis of France's role in Europe's new security order adds a new perspective to a post-Cold War security dialogue that has focused on the superpowers and Germany. Posner links his comprehensive study of current French security policy to the 1960s and analyzes policy made at the highest level and at the operational level as well. The study defines how a French model for European security might look today and how France could provide new leadership, if a strong initiative were taken, for establishing a new framework for military cooperation in a recently transformed Europe.
