NATO has come under increasing fire for its structural constraints, shortcomings in burden sharing among its members, and disagreements about threat assessments and priorities. Despite these serious challenges, longtime NATO watcher David Yost argues that the Alliance is no Cold War dinosaur."NATO s Balancing Act" evaluates the alliance s performance of its three core task NATO has come under increasing fire for its structural constraints, shortcomings in burden sharing among its members, and disagreements about threat assessments and priorities. Despite these serious challenges, longtime NATO watcher David Yost argues that the Alliance is no Cold War dinosaur."NATO s Balancing Act" evaluates the alliance s performance of its three core tasks collective defense, crisis management, and cooperative security and reviews its members efforts to achieve the right balance among them. NATO has retained its original collective defense and positive political change missions, but it has also undertaken crisis management operations and addressed nontraditional threats, such as energy and cyber security, terrorism, and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction.This volume examines the evolving security environment and its implications for collective defense before turning to the Alliance s crisis management efforts in the Balkans, Afghanistan, Africa, and Libya. Yost also considers the possibility of NATO s further enlargement, the complexities of its partnerships with other international organizations, and its shifting relationships with Russia, Ukraine, Georgia, Mediterranean andPersian Gulf states, and the Asia-Pacific region.Whether NATO can maintain cohesion and perform its tasks effectively is a question of fundamental importance for U.S. and international security. "NATO s Balancing Act" calls for a constructive path forward, including balanced engagement with Russia, missions beyond Europe as necessary, and enhanced partnerships with international organizations and nations."
