Overview

The essays collected here outline a number of factors which made the EC too young to be able to assimilate Britain's important interests, and the British over-optimistic in their approach to negotiations with the Community. The role of conflict over Western strategy and European political union in the breakdown of the negotiations is re-assessed, and the negotiations over agriculture and the Commonwealth are revealed in an entirely new light.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Aware of the sometimes primary importance of events that never happened, a dozen historians incorporate material from recently opened archives into essays from a July 1993 conference in Cambridge, England. They consider the impact on the European Community of Britain's first application to join, the place of various actors in regional and global politics, and the breakdown of negotiations. They find the Community to have been too young to assimilate Britain's special interests, and Britain to have been over-optimistic about what they could achieve. Paper edition (unseen), $22.50. Distributed in the US by ISBS. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
