It would have been inconceivable, wrote Henry Kissinger in his book Diplomacy, that the architects of NATO would have seen as the end result of victory in the Cold War greater diversity within the Alliance. This text offers an interpretation of why the Western Alliance is in trouble and why it may have entered the twilight of its collective life. Throughout, it draws on a wide-ranging discussion of Western culture to understand the changes that are taking place in the Western world. Particular emphasis is placed on the changes in philosophy that helped shape the Alliance and its view of the rest of the world.
