Adaptation, the ability to adjust to new political and military challenges, is what defines NATO. It is the overarching theme of a timely publication from the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI), edited by John Andreas Olsen, Norway’s Defence Attaché in the United Kingdom. Fifteen authors – diplomats, military officers and think tankers – look at NATO’s agenda from various angles. In ten chapters that range from threats to NATO’s East and South, the maritime dimension, technological challenges and NATO’s partnership approach, they examine current policies and offer a glimpse into the future.
