The new dangers and challenges to international security in Europe after the Cold War are examined in this book. The changing nature of Europe's security problems has necessitated new thinking among both civilians and the military about arms control, the problems it should address, the purposes it should serve, and even what should be called 'arms control' today. Arms control should be seen as encompassing all aspects of the military dimension of the endeavours to mitigate or mediate tensions within states and to keep them from tuning violent. It entails joint management of the cold war legacy of nuclear and conventional weapons. Security and Arms Control in Post-Confrontation Europe examines in particular the role which could and should be played by the Conference on Security and Co-operation in Europe (CSCE) for the prevention of intra-state armed conflicts.

NOD and Conversion The reader benefits from a plethora of original and constructive ideas coming from the author's personal experience, her extensive interviews of European officials and her wide-ranging knowledge of European security affairs ... the book is useful because the reader is challenged to pick and choose and then think further. Survival The strengths of the book are that it is full of new ideas and that it discusses these in the context of the sorts of border conflicts and inter-ethnic tensions that have become so prevalent in Europe ... the book is to be welcomed as a contribution towards re-thinking the utility of Cold War concepts in a transformed European security environment. Political Studies the reader benefits from a plethora of original and constructive ideas coming from the author's personal experience, her extensive interviews of European officials and her wide-ranging knowledge of European security affairs ... the book is useful because the reader is challenged to pick and choose and then think further.
