Push NATO eastward or push no farther-that is the critical question for the fifty-year-old alliance

Push NATO eastward or push no farther-that is the critical question for the fifty-year-old alliance. This anthology examines four issues: the enlargement of NATO before the fall of the Berlin Wall in 1989, probable guidelines and possible paths to future enlargement, the views of certain states currently seeking memberships, and the objections to the enlargement posed by several states of the former Soviet Union.

Enlargement of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) is the process of including new member states in NATO. NATO is a military alliance of twenty-seven European and two North American countries that constitutes a system of collective defense. The process of joining the alliance is governed by Article 10 of the North Atlantic Treaty, which allows only for the invitation of "other European States", and by subsequent agreements

Based upon years of 'inside' experience, Jeffrey Simon's book is a comprehensive and original study of civil-military relations in Poland that provides a conceptual framework drawn upon the lessons of post-communist transition in the entire Central and East European region. Ever since the revolutions of 1989-1990, most Central and Eastern European states have been striving to move closer to NATO's 'criteria' for membership. A critical element of Partnership for Peace (PFP) in January 1994 and its Study on NATO Enlargement in September 1995 was democratic control of the military-considered an essential pre-condition for NATO membership.

The book is divided into four major parts: periodic functions and Fourier series, non-periodic functions and the Fourier integral, switched-on signals and the Laplace transform, and finally the discrete versions of these transforms, in particular the Discrete Fourier Transform together with its fast implementation, and the z-transform.

Jeffrey Simon NATO Enlargement: Opinions and Options.

This Forum focuses on the following topics: The guidelines and paths of NATO enlargement; how enlargement has occurred historically, how enlargement might occur through the EU/WEU path, and finally through the Partnership for Peace (PFP) program. NATO Enlargement: Opinions and Options.

NATO Enlargement begins with a review of NATO's origins, development, and expansion experiences. It then examines the usefulness of the Western European Union (WEU) and the Partnership for Peace (PFP) program as paths to NATO membership. It evaluates the efforts of the Visegrad states to achieve membership and presents the perspectives of EU/WEU Associate Partners (Poland, Romania, and Lithuania) in support of NATO enlargement.

The contrary views of successor states of the former Soviet Union (Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus) follow. The Russian government is adamantly opposed to NATO enlargement, arguing that it would be damaging to Russia's economic, political, and military interests, and would isolate Russia. Ukraine supports NATO expansion if it does not exclude or isolate states, or acknowledge any Russian "sphere of influence" over former USSR territory. Belarus argues the need for a European security council that reflects European interests, restricts the sphere of American influence in European affairs, and includes Russia and other former states of the Soviet Union.

Taking up the question of how NATO must change if it is to enlarge, the book considers political, military and defense program requirements. When NATO enlarges, major political changes will become necessary, military command relationships will need to be modified, and defense infrastructure requirements will be enormous. Three conclusions emerge: (1) dramatic progress in the Partnership for Peace program has led to a high degree of self-differentiation among the partner states, and has shifted Central European attitudes toward PFP from one of skepticism to one of enthusiastic support; (2) Expansion would have a very negative impact politically within Russia, damage from which a compensation package will not fully offset; and (3) NATO enlargement will take years to accomplish.
