"Chaya Arora has given us a superb analysis on the German influence on NATO's enlargement process towards the East. Her well-researched and well-argued book rectifies the widespread belief that granting membership to Poland, Hungary and the Czech Republic had been an primarily an American project. Her work will be essential reading for those who wish to understand the significant impact German diplomacy had on NATO's membership question." --Karl-Heinz Kamp, Security Policy Coordinator, Konrad Adenauer Foundation, Berlin
