In European Foreign Policy leading international scholars address the implications of this question. Analyzing foreign policy changes in the new Europe, the contributors assess the state and foreign policy, foreign economic policy, the long term future of European security and the role of multinational companies. The book also focuses on foreign policy actors in the light of major theories. The discussions range from the examination of weak power theory in the context of Nordic reactions to the Soviet coup to the agency-structure debate after the collapse of the Cold War European system.
In addition, there are two critiques by specialists from outside the field that explore the issues raised in this book from a feminist perspective as well as from a postmodern view of the wider theoretical context within which foreign policy analysis is embedded.
