This book analyses the genesis and process through which transatlantic strategic dissonance now defines a divided West. It contends that constructive strategic dissonance has the potential to best manage a complex and pressing global security agenda. Reflects on the bitter disputes that have crystallized across the Atlantic after 9/11 and the rise of terrorist, WMD and failed state threats. Structured around the concepts of ?Atlantic?, ?Core?, ?New? ?Non-aligned? and ?Periphery? Europe that have emerged in the wake of these disputes. Identifies the trends and factors that have driven and could further propel the Euro-Atlantic security community towards different futures. Analyses the security policy implications of each scenario for states within this region.
