Overview

Regional integration has emerged as one of the most important developments in recent world politics. In this book Walter Mattli examines integration schemes in nineteenth- and twentieth-century Europe, but also in Latin America, North America and Asia since the 1950s. The book stresses the importance of market forces in determining the outcome of integration, but also highlights the impact of institutional factors. The book will provide students of political science, economics, and European studies with a new framework for the study of international cooperation.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The historical and geographical sweep of The Logic of Regional Integration is very impressive—ranging from the nineteenth-century German Zollverein to the contemporary European Union to Mercosur and beyond. But Mattli's finest achievement is coupling this empirical depth with a rigorous, parsimonious and persuasive thesis. His central argument that economic disparities between insiders and outsiders drive regional integration is a major contribution to the debate about this important phenomenon." Geoffrey Garret, Yale University

"By combining a political economy approach with an historical and comparative perspective, Mattli offers a stimulating and thorough analysis of regional integration. His book is a major contribution to the understanding of one of the most challenging phenomena of our time." Yves Mény, European University Institute

    The most adequate and modern theoretcal approach to integration

    The book contains short and up to the point summary of the current theoretical approaches towards integration and could be of use for those who are just making their way through the complex and rather confusing sea of ideas in this field. But what is the most precious in the book, that is its original theoretical framework. It is a sophisticated extension of Andrew Moravcsik¿s concept of demand and supply, it is very conceptual and is really useful for those who are curious what makes a regional integration arrangement to work and how to assess its' chances to succeed. The framework is easily applicable to any kind of RIA and seems really trustable as a theoretical instrument for case studies. Another good thing about it is that the theory is richly illustrated with European and non-European arrangements and is a good guide through the contemporary regional politics of all the continents. It is not euro-centric and offers an impressive global perspective.
