"An extraordinarily timely and germane assessment of the evolution of the transatlantic relationship and the identity and roles of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) in the European, Eura-sian, Greater Middle Eastern, and broader global security architecture in the wake of Russia's inter-vention in (and conduct of a war of choice against) Ukraine beginning in February 2022. Most sig-nificantly, the book is instructive in situating the historical strains of cooperation and discord be-tween the United States and its European allies within shifting strategic and geopolitical environ-ments that demand balance and in safeguarding often interconnected threats posed by global and regional adversaries, most notably Russia, China, Iran and North Korea on one hand, and transna-tional challenges such as climate change, cybersecurity, and Islamist extremist driven terrorism on the other. Further, the author is adept in identifying and explaining the links between those threats emphasized in the 2022 NATO Strategic Concept and the daunting challenges in achieving the req-uisite transatlantic unity to manage them effectively." --Robert J. Pauly, Jr., Professor of Interna-tional Development, The University of Southern Mississippi

"This is a timely contribution to deepen our understanding of how Russian and Chinese offensive maneuvers, along with the security risks posed by the current pandemic, climate change, terrorism, migration, and threats posed by hybrid war-fare are shaping NATO's strategic reorientation. Dolan also recognizes the internal threats to liberal democracies, namely the rise of illiberal political forces, in NATO member states and the challenges they pose to the Euro-Atlantic alliance. The book is clearly organized and includes the author's recommendations for NATO's effective path forward." --S. Mohsin Hashim, Professor of Political Science, Muhlenberg College
