Two studies by specialists. Haglund, a good Canadian scholar, argues that a "Carolingian" core of France and Germany has been hard to swallow for those excluded-Britain in particular-or seemed unnecessary in the burst of enthusiasm for pan-European arrangements.

Laird's book is a wide-ranging collection of essays by an American who knows Europe well and who systematically interviews European officials and observers.
