"Singular Europe" is an exceptionally authoritative survey of current developments in the European Community which also looks ahead to Europe after 1992. It covers key sectors of the European economy as well as social and political prospects. The authors have been well chosen, so that the book combines the insight of experts from Europe with the advantages of a perspective from leading U.S. specialists. It provides a valuable framework for analysis of many of the issues confronting Europe after 1992." - Francis G. Jacobs, Advocate General at the Court of Justice of the European Communities"It is a hard task to link politics and economies in a single-country analysis and it is even more challenging to do the same for a whole continent like Europe. Professor Adams succeeds in this difficult task, through his personal knowledge and expertise and thanks to some of the best European and American scholars." --Romano Prodi, Professor of Economics, University of Bologna, former Chairman of IRI, and former Minister of Industry for Italy"As a broad-scale, up- to-date overview of European integration- where the Europeans have gotten so far, what alternative routes now stretch ahead, and what obstacles they are likely to encounter-this book is exemplary. It brings together within a single volume some of the most thoughtful and distinguished observers from both sides of the Atlantic." --Robert D. Putnam, Don K.
