NATO and the Challenges of Austerity, a book co-authored by Visiting Assistant Professor of Government Calin Trenkov-Wermuth ’00, was recently published by RAND Corporation. Trenkov-Wermuth and his co-authors, F. Stephen Larrabee, Stuart E. Johnson, John Gordon IV, Peter A. Wilson, Caroline Baxter and Deborah Lai, prepared the report for the Office of the Secretary of Defense.
According to its abstract, the book reports the results of the authors’ study of “the impact of planned defense budget cuts on the capabilities of seven European members of NATO — the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands, and Poland — that together represent more than 80 percent of NATO Europe's defense spending.”
The RAND Corporation describes itself as “a nonprofit institution that helps improve policy and decision making through research and analysis.”
