The Limits of European Integration
The Limits of European Integration
By Paul Taylor
Columbia University Press, 1983, 320 pp

It is no news that the members of the European Community are not as closely knit as many people expected them to be by this time. Mr. Taylor of the London School of Economics makes a close analysis of the many reasons why this is so and how it happened. To improve the situation he suggests that several countries be permitted to move ahead together even if the rest of the group does not join in, and, more tentatively, that European countries reduce their economic ties with the rest of the world and pay more attention to one another.
