Abstract:

"The first detailed history of the origins of the European Community, this is the sequel and companion to The Reconstruction of Western Europe, 1945-51. It functions on a number of levels: as an original analysis of the factors which brought the EC together, and as an exploration of the future relationship between the nation-state and the community on the basis of its history. The book looks in detail at the activities of the European Coal, Iron, and Steel Community, at the origins of the Economic Community and at the beginnings of the Common Agricultural Policy. It concludes with a study of why Great Britain has remained outside these arrangements. In arguing that the purpose of the European Community policies was not to supercede but to reinforce the nation-state, Alan Milward cuts through the accepted orthodoxies on the topic with an original and controversial study. Combining political with economic analysis, and based on material from archives in eight European countries, this book provides an enlightening and challenging insight into the background and future of the European Community."--Jacket.
