The various essays in this volume aim to provide food for thought and a call for reasoned response to realistic security needs. The aim of the editors has been to contribute to the development of concepts that would reduce the danger of conflict by the creation of more stable structures of defense in the context of a conventional defense posture. A variety of alternatives to European conventional defense are presented by German and American specialists, driven, for the most part by similar strategic considerations. The book is aimed at political scientists and students of political science, government officals and military strategists.

Part 1 Surveys of force posture alternatives: debate on alternative conventional military force structure designs for the defense of central Europe in the Federal Republic of Germany; the American debate on conventional alternatives for the defense of Central Europe. PArt 2 Force posture alternatives: nuclear forces and the defense of Europe; mutual structural defensive superiority - a new security philosophy and elements of a new force structure design; nonprovocative defense - a conceptual critique and an alternative approach. Part 3 Internaional and domestic changes: Germany's political role and military force planning in the post Cold War order in Europe and the continued relevance of non-offensive defense; European security, NATO and the future of the new international cooperative system after the second Russian revolution.
