    Palgrave Macmillan 1999; US$ 64.00

    Containing the histories (from 1945 to the present) of the nuclear strategies of NATO, Britain and France, and of the defence preferences of the FRG (West Germany), this book shows how strategies were functions of a perceived Soviet threat and an American 'nuclear guarantee'.

  • War, Peace and World Orders in European Historyby Anja V. Hartmann; Beatrice Heuser

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 61.95

    This book explores a new way for students of International Relations to look at war, peace and world orders throughout European history.
