This book represents the first ever comprehensive study of the EU’s foreign and security policy in Bosnia. Drawing on a wealth of fresh empirical material, it demonstrates that institutions are a key variable in explaining levels of common foreign security policy (CFSP) coherence and effectiveness over time. In doing so, it also sheds new light on the role that intergovernmental, bureaucratic and local political contestation have played in the formulation and implementation of a European foreign policy. The study concludes that the EU’s involvement in Bosnia has not only had a significant impact on this Balkan country in its path from stabilisation to integration, but has also transformed the EU, its foreign and security policy and shaped the development of the EU’s international identity along the way. The book will be of great interest to researchers and students of EU politics, International Relations and Bosnian politics.

When the first edition of America Recommitted was published in 1991, the world was passing through a period of sweeping political and social change. The Cold War was over; China had reverted to harsh authoritarian rule; U.S.-led forces were deployed in Saudi Arabia for potential military action against Iraq; the Soviet Union was on the verge of disintegration; and the unraveling of Yugoslavia had set the stage for brutal ethnic conflicts in Bosnia and Kosovo. In the midst of this widespread upheaval, the United States reassessed its own role as the sole remaining superpower3⁄4a process that continues today. This new edition features three new chapters that assess U.S. foreign policy during the last two years of the Bush presidency and the first seven years of the Clinton administration, bringing new data and insights to the questions that have challenged U.S. policymakers during the 1990s.

Germany has emerged as the key actor in post-Cold War Europe, which will increasingly influence the prosperity and stability of the whole of Europe. This study examines how a judicious and balanced application of Ostpolitik (Eastern Policy) from 1949 to the present had enabled Germany to enhance its maneovrability in foreign policy, expand its economic and political influence, and multilateralise the process of detente. It highlights Willy Brandt's attempts to overcome the rigidity and immobilism in foreign policy which threatened to politically isolate the Federal Republic and led to a straightjacketing of its policy options vis-a-vis the East, the West and the Third World. It assesses the implications of the Eastern treaties and discusses Helmut Schmidt's efforts to consolidate the political, economic, and humanitarian benefits of Ostpolitik and safeguard the carefully nurtured process of detente in Europe from the vicissitudes of Super Power relations. This book analyzes the Federal Republic's economic relations with its eastern neighbours and examines the elements of continuity and change in Chancellor Helmut Kohl's Ostpolitik. In conclusion, Dr Jain critically evaluates the implications of united Germany for both East and West Europe.
