European foreign policies does Europe still matter? ( )
11 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 669 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The extent of Europe's influence in the twenty-first century is one of the fundamental questions in a rapidly changing world order. How much does Europe still matter in geostrategic affairs? Will the Europeans seek more international clout and be willing to pay the price for it? Above all, will the European-American partnership prosper or weaken? In the only comprehensive study available on the subject, leading international experts explore these vital questions for global peace and security. The book includes authoritative chapters on the foreign policies of the major European countries, of the European Union, and of Europe toward key regions and countries, especially the United States, Russia, China, and the Middle East

The Mitterrand legacy and the future of French security policy by Ronald Tiersky ( Book )
9 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 447 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
President Francois Mitterrand was the living link between France's Cold War and post-Cold War security policy. Generally speaking, Mitterrand's leadership in foreign and security policy was impressive. His masterful security policy performance during his first term (1981-1988) gave way to much criticized hesitations and uncertainties during the transition from Cold War to post-Cold War problems. Yet, overall, Mitterrand's legacies in foreign and security policy are a source of some confidence to President Chirac. There are two parts to the issue of evaluating Francois Mitterrand's legacy in French security policy. One is the heritage of 14 years of French policy. Not everything was Mitterrand's responsibility, and, given France's interests, much of what he did would have been done, better or worse, by any French president. The other is, what aspects of the legacy are particularly Mitterrand's work? Did Mitterrand's own views, for example, prolong certain policies that otherwise would likely have been changed? Will certain of his policies, controversial or inadequate, be rapidly changed after his departure from office? Are there notable Mitterrand policies likely to characterize French security policy for a long time? Chapter 1 provides background information on France and Post-Cold War European Security and Mitterrand's Legacy. Chapter 2, Concepts and Doctrine, addresses The New Nexus of Security and Integration; The Security Concern of Muslim Fundamentalism; The Crise des Fondements: Gaullism, National Interest, and European Security; and Bosnia, France, and European Security. Chapter 3, Some French Military Trends, looks at Force Development: The 1995-2000 Military Plan, Mitterrand's Nuclear Legacy, and The Nuclear Test Moratorium. Chapter 4, Institutional Developments, focuses on The Balladur Cohabitation Government, A French-British Defense Axis?, Developing the OSCE, and An Inter-African Peacekeeping Force? Chapter 5 discusses After Mitterrand. (42 refs.) 7

François Mitterrand has proven to be France's most important leader since Charles de Gaulle.
