After a brief introduction on the four levels of the debate
on ballistic missile defence and on the three different reactions
to SDI in West Germany, in chapter 2 West European (British,.
French, German) perceptions and reactions to the Strategic
Defense Initiative are reviewed, in chapter 3 different technical
concepts for tactical antiballistic missiles (TABM) or antitactical
missiles (ATM) and the technological and military dimensions
of a Euro-version of SDI are reviewed, in chapter 4 the arms
control context for ATM due to restrictions in the ABM treaty
is being assessed, and in chapter 5 possible military implications
of SDI and ATM and arms control considerations about the Geneva
'umbrella' talks on space, START and INF are being debated.
