Southeastern Europe, in the few short years since the close of the Cold War, has moved dramatically from the periphery to the center of the risks to security and stability in Europe. A setting of both tremendous economic opportunity and lagging economic development, a corner of Europe closest to the turbulent Middle East, and crossroads of three major civilizations - southeastern Europe poses challenges of unparalleled complexity to security planners in the United States and througout the West. At the pivot of this uncertain setting stands the bilateral U.S.-Greek relationship, itself a critical dimension of the stake of the broader Atlantic alliance in the security of the region. After a period of turmoil and mutual distrust during the 1980s, in recent years, the Greek-U.S. tie has emerged as a key factor in the accomplishment of broader U.S. regional objectives. This volume brings together perspectives from senior officials and commentators from both the United States and Greece on the status and prospects of the U.S.-Greek relationship, and the implications of such pressing questions as the unfolding security setting of the Balkans' stability in the Aegean, the future of the Greek-Turkish relationship, and the question of Cyprus.
