The run-up to the Iraq war, the campaign itself and its aftermath have all had a profound impact on international relations in general and on NATO in particular. This issue of NATO Review, which is entitled In the wake of Iraq, analyses the wider implications of the Iraq campaign. In the first of four articles devoted to this theme, Sir Timothy Garden of the Centre for Defence Studies, King's College London examines the political impact of the Iraq campaign and ways forward for all institutions involved. Tom Donnelly of the American Enterprise Institute in Washington assesses the impact of the Iraq campaign on NATO from a US perspective. Diego A. Ruiz-Palmer of NATO's Operations Division analyses the background to the Alliance's decision to take responsibility for peacekeeping in Afghanistan. And Lieutenant-Colonel Steven Collins, chief of PSYOPS at SHAPE, examines the Coalition's perception-management operations before, during and after Operation Iraqi Freedom as well as their implications for NATO.

In the debate, Max Boot of the Council for Foreign Relations in New York and Harald Müller of the Peace Research Institute Frankfurt discuss the relative merits of pre-emption as a tool to address the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. In the interview, Admiral Ian Forbes, the last Supreme Allied Commander, Atlantic, discusses the Iraq campaign, military transformation and the new Allied Command Transformation. James Appathurai of NATO's Political Affairs and Security Policy Division reviews literature on the revolution in military affairs. Nano Ruzin, Macedonia's* ambassador to NATO, analyses how Macedonia has benefited from its relationship with the Alliance and other international organisations during the past two years. And Ronald D. Asmus of the German Marshall Fund of the United States considers the challenges facing the countries of Central and Eastern Europe as they enter the European Union and NATO. Statistics on defence spending and military personnel round out the edition.
