This book outlines specific proposals to reduce the massive military confrontation between East and West in Europe which consumes some $500 billion yearly. As he makes clear, the political underpinnings of the confrontation have eroded, leaving the military stand-off increasingly obsolete. 'Meeting Gorbachev's Challenge' shows how European leaders and their American allies can increase their security while easing the burden of the most costly military confrontation in human history.
