US Allies in a Changing World

The book is a collection of papers from a November 1998 international conference sponsored by the BESA Center and the Foreign Policy Institute at the School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS) of Johns Hopkins University. Edited by Barry Rubin and Thomas Keaney. This volume explores the development of the Unites States’ alliances from the American perspective, as well as from that of its most important allies – Britain, Germany, the Gulf States, Israel, Turkey, Australia, Japan, South Korea and Taiwan. The book considers how these relationships have changed in the tumultuous international environment of the past half-century, as well as looking at their present situations and the likely future direction of each country’s link to the United States.
