For most of the Cold War naval arms control was the forgotten dimension of arms control. Beginning in the late 1980s, however, it has become increasingly prominent in the East-West dialogue. But it is usually studied from the perspective of Soviet-American relations. This book examines the subject from a European perspective. What role might naval arms control play in the European context? What impact might naval arms control have on the interests and perceptions of European states? What opportunities for and obstacles to naval arms control exist in Europe? The authors address these questions, describing the naval interests and attitudes towards naval arms control of European coastal states, as well as the Soviet Union and the United States, in the Norwegian, Baltic, and Mediterranean seas.

`All the contributions are interesting and valuable ... This volume, which also contains some well-balanced historical perspectives and much information on naval policies, should be read by all who are seriously interested in this subject.' International Affairs 'The volume provides a most useful overview of the debate in its sections on the Norwegian Sea and the Baltic, with contributions from experts in some key littoral states as well as the US and USSR.' David C. Scrivener, Keele University, Political Studies (1994) XLII `The volume provides a most useful overview of the debate in its sections on the Norwegian Sea and the Baltic, with contributions from experts in some key littoral states as well as the US and USSR.' Political Studies `It very effectively encapsulates the core issues of naval arms control. It is interestingly written, hangs together well, is as well produced as OUP/SIPRI books usually are and at £32.50 for 341 pages represents very good value for money. A competent, professional piece of work on the part of all concerned that deserves to become a definitive text on the subject. Highly recommended.' Arms Control
