This title was first published in 2000. A groundbreaking book, which focuses on the beliefs behind symbolic agreements, rather than the material motivations of insubstantial agreements, to facilitate understanding of intergovernmental co-operation amongst EC states in the post-Cold War period.


’This detailed, well-written book is not just a valuable source of empirical information…[it] also provides an original perspective on the process of European integration.’ The International Spectator ’…a fascinating and scholarly study of a crucial period in the evolution of the EU…’ European Foreign Affairs Review
