American Military Doctrines of New Generation


The article is based on the neorealist theory and is aimed to the analysis of the military doctrines of the USA published between 2012 – 2018. It evaluates them as the consequence of important changes after the end of the Cold War, namely the process of the enlargement of NATO. The article explains the US doctrines as a manifestation of a reinforced military self – esteem of the USA and warns that these doctrines should lead to an increase of the military tension at the Eastern frontier of the enlarged NATO.
