Although for a long time naval arms control was the forgotten dimension of arms control, it has become increasingly prominent in recent years. However, it is usually studied from the perspective of Soviet-American relations. This book examines the subject from a European perspective. Whatrole 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? This collection of essays addresses these questions, describingthe 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.
Andreas Furst is at the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute. Volker Heise is with the German Armed Forces Staff College. Steven Miller is Director of Studies, Center for Science and International Affairs, Harvard University.

Editorial Reviews

`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 L32.50 for 341 pages represents very good value for money. A competent, professional piece of work on the partof all concerned that deserves to become a definitive text on the subject. Highly recommended.'Arms Control
