This European-orientated reviewer wondered whether a more central place might not have been given to the role of the EU, a regulator of seeming ever-increasing importance. Part of the final paragraph of the book reads, 'by postponing the promised e-commerce legislation until the new millennium the [UK] Government lost the opportuntiy of setting the agenda for the shole of Europe and must now follow what its European masters dctate' (p.287).
