The Economic Emergence of a New Europe?
The Political Economy of Cooperation and Competition in the 1990's
Questions of European economic and political integration have been placed firmly on the policy agenda as we enter the late 1990s. The Economic Emergence of a New Europe? explores the arguments and forms of analysis deployed by those who have been pressing for closer integration since the early 1980s. Although events in Denmark and the United Kingdom have thrown the future of the post-Maastricht European Community into some confusion, the agreements already reached will propel the Community along a path of ever closer economic co-operation. Casting a sceptical eye over much of the economic analysis used to explore the effects and implications of the integration process, this book critically examines the reasons behind the contemporary imperative for greater integration among the European states, and assesses the likely limits of this programme.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'This well written book presents sound and convincing arguments. Its major strength is the use of the twin idea of institutional diversity and co-operation-competition in the European context.' -- Michael Dietrich, Sheffield University Management School, UK 'A well-written book on European economic and political integration, critically examining the arguments and forms of analysis deployed by advocates of closer integration over the last ten years. The book presents sound and convincing arguments and its major strength is the use of the twin idea of institutional diversity and co-operation competition in the European context, with additional assessment of the likely limits of the integration programme.' -- Aslib Book Guide 'Overall the book provides an excellent discussion of the issues relating to economic and political integration in Europe.' -- D. Perrons, Environment and Planning A 'A well-written book that presents sound and convincing arguments, its major strength is the use of the twin idea of institutional diversity and cooperation - competition in the European context.' -- International Review of Administrative Sciences
