This study examines West European foreign policy and defense attitudes along four dimensions military security, foreign policy approaches, national defense priority, and anti-Americanism. Following a review of the recent literature on this topic, data, from Eurobarometer surveys are used to test several propositions concerning European public opinion. Trend analyses and cross-national comparisons are emphasized. The nations included in this study are Great Britain, West Germany, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and Belgium. Support for NATO was found to be substantial while priority placed upon national defense by Europeans was found to be increasing, and anti-Americanism was also found to be increasing.
