The Future of NATO looks at the conceptual and theoretical approaches that underlie the question of enlarging NATO's membership and the consequences of enlargement on international relations. It examines the policies of some of NATO's leading member states - including Canada, which has recently begun a two-year term on the security council - and deals with the issue of enlargement from the point of view of the East European candidates, focusing on Russia and its opposition to the current process. Contributors include Andras Balogh (Loran Eotvos University), Martin Bourgeois, Charles-Philippe David (UQAM), Andre P. Donneur (UQAM), David G. Haglund (Queen's), Philippe Hebert (Montreal), Stanislav J. Kirschbaum (Glendon College), Richard L. Kugler (RAND, National Defence University), David Law (Queen's), Paul Letourneau (Montreal), Jacques Levesque (UQAM), Gale Mattox (U.S. Naval Academy), Marie-Claude Plantin (Lumiere Lyon 2), Sergei Plekhanov (York), Jane M.O. Sharp (Kings College, London).
