Changing the Guard in Brussels: An Insider's View of the EC Presidency

Front Cover
Praeger, 1988 - Law - 162 pages
12 European powers, most of whom have had a taste of global dominion in the past, are understandable reluctant to forsake their traditional sovereignity. But a process is under way that is beginning to acquire a new momentum, especially with the 1992 deadline so close. This is an appraisal of the institutions of the European Community as seen by someone familiar with the daily activity of the Council of Ministers. It deals with reality and results from personal experience, not from an academic study.
