The Political Economy of Integration in the European Community
Edition 2 Revised edition
OverviewThe second edition of this widely adopted undergraduate textbook includes a significant amount of new material on the single market in 1992. It is a comprehensive and readable text, setting the economics of the EEC within an interdisciplinary framework. The Political Economy of Integration in the European Community provides a detailed coverage of the key areas of economic activity. Each chapter follows a common format. The reader is first introduced to the issues involved and then presented with an in-depth analysis of the process and consequences of Community economic integration in major areas - trade (both within the Community and with the outside world), agriculture, regional development, monetary and fiscal integration and industrial policy. The concluding section discusses the effects of sectoral integration on the United Kingdom. The book has been widely adopted for both specialist courses in economics as well as interdisciplinary courses in European studies. Lecturers who are already using the book or who would like to consider it are invited to send for an examination copy of the second edition.
