Synopsis: A compelling examination by a leading scholar of European politics of one of the most important dynamics of the post-Cold War world, this text outlines the successes and failures of European integration up to 1992 and analyzes the pitfalls that may lie ahead. Identifying a profound "democratic deficit" in the continental political system, George Ross shows how the European Commission, a powerful bureaucracy that does things for and to the peoples of the European Community largely behind their backs, serves as the EC's engine of progress rather than the much more democratic, but far weaker, European Parliament. Ross evaluates the prospects for further political and economic integration in light of this problem, in the face of opposition from some member countries, and in the wake of the revolutions of 1989. With plentiful background information on the structure, history, and function of the EC, this book will be a valuable resource for courses on European politics and international organizations.

Book Description Polity Press. Paperback. Book Condition: new. BRAND NEW, Jacques Delors and European Integration, George Ross, Jacques Delors has been the most successful President of the European Commission in the history of the European Community. The events of his time in Brussels may have constituted the best chance yet to create a new supranational order to consolidate European political and social arrangements. Jacques Delors and European Integration reconsiders the last decade of EC history, and the Maastricht period in particular, from the point of view of Delors's unfolding strategy. The book's remarkable data sources include the author's observations of the day-to-day work of the Commission under Delors and access to key personnel and documents. The author explores the ways in which Delors and his team tried to capitalize upon the complex openings in Europe's political opportunity structures from the mid-1980s. The "1992" programme to complete the Single Market galvanized European energies and contributed to renewed optimism. Maastricht and its sequels have proven less successful. Jacques Delors and European Integration follows processes around the Maastricht Treaty from inside, observing the complex system of European institutions at work. What kind of turning point will Maastricht turn out to be? The book attempts to reach a conclusion about what, in retrospect, will certainly be seen as one of the most daring experiments at transnational politics of modern times.
