The European Community has moved ever closer towards European union. Yet how did the Community begin and what are its present powers? How will the Community develop if it continues with economic, monetary, and political integration?
Now fully updated, John Pinder's new edition details: how the transformation of relations among member states has resulted from a series of steps; the strengthening of the Community's institutions; its enlargement from six to twelve countries, and the new bids for membership; the moves from customs union to the single market, and from the EMS to the project for economic and monetary union; discussions of GATT & Maastricht; and the development of agricultural, budgetary, industrial, social, and foreign policies.
After constructing a complete and coherent view of the Community, John Pinder assesses the political and economic forces for and against unification. He squarely confronts the question whether the Community is likely to become a federal state, and offers his own neo-federalist approach. This second edition of The European Community will be invaluable to students and scholars who seek a greater understanding of the Community.
