The European Community has moved ever closer towards European union. 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, this edition details how the transformation of relations among EC member states has resulted from a series of steps: the strengthening of the Community's institutions; its enlargement from 6 to 12 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; 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 confronts the question of whether the Community is likely to become a federal state, and offers his own neo-federalist approach.
