When NATO Preaches with Passion

by Ludo De Brabander & Georges Spriet

Experts Ludo De Brabander and Georges Spriet explain the real origins of NATO: the organisation had to institutionalize the American influence in Europe after the Second World War and create a military structure to ensure the protection and expansion of the capitalist world.

After an intensive historical portrait of the alliance, the authors adequately describe the new global ambitions of NATO based on a doctrine of military intervention. Even today the United States wants to consolidate its status of only superpower in the world through NATO.

But many NATO members primarily prefer to defend their strategic and economic interests. The reinvented NATO leads to new global tensions and questions. Is the US policy dividing the EU? Are we on the verge of a new Cold War with Russia? What about surging powers like China?
