The subject of this paper is modification of cooperative spontaneous emission by a nonuniform medium, with nonuniform distributions of electromagnetic field. A brief analysis is presented, and it is postulated that if spontaneous emission from an atom is strongly suppressed, cooperative emission with another atom may be a preferred emission channel and may counteract the suppression.
