Written by Quebec's Delegate General to Paris, this translation of the 1988 edition (with a few grammar and syntax problems) is basically a collection of seven essays that discuss a single currency, elimination of borders, and the White Paper, among other topics. Stating that ``elimination of all existing borders will curb the relative decline of Europe,'' Roy takes the view that the Single Market will be a good thing for the world economy; this is hardly news to the informed reader. He doesn't seem to include any crucial or heretofore unknown information. Mildly interesting are British Prime Minister John Major's views on the EC in Chapter 6. While Roy includes very brief lists of abbreviations, institutions, addresses of councils and commissions, and a bibliography, these features are treated far more extensively in the European Communities Encyclopedia and Directory, 1992 ( LJ 12/91) and the Arthur Andersen European Community Handbook ( LJ 8/91). Not an essential work, this is recommended only for libraries that collect exhaustively on the EC.-- Lisa K. Miller, American Graduate Sch. of International Management Lib., Glendale, Ariz.
