Synopsis

Lepgold's timely book examines the substance of and rationale for the American defense commitment to Europe between 1960 and 1980, a period marked by change in the U.S. world position. America's military, technological, and economic primacy of the 1950s is gone. Lepgold explores how' and why' political leaders have adapted to this change. His study is the analysis of a "hegemonic" state's foreign policy adaption. As he examines provocative policy questions, one question acts as the leitmotif for his study--should foreign policy "commitments" and "resources" grow and decline in tandem? A final chapter discusses these events in light of recent changes in Europe.
