Summary "Nato Enlargement During the Cold War" analyzes the historical experience surrounding Nato enlargement. Features include the role and influence of external factors, the dynamics of intra-alliance debate, and a taxonomy of membership. Most important, however, is the conclusion that NATO expansion was never drawn solely by Cold War factors, giving insight into why NATO survived the end of the Cold War.
