European Foreign Policy traces the development of the European Union's foreign policy making from the old governmental co-operation (EPC) to the common foreign and security policy introduced by the Maastricht Treaty. It is the first time the process had been explained from a comprehensivehistorical as well as political viewpoint. The impact of the fall of communism as well as the Gulf War and the early stages of the conflict in Yugoslavia are analysed in detail. The personal roles played by Mitterrand, Kohl, and Bush are vividly described. The theme of the book is the way in whichideological quarrels between intergovernmentalists and integrationists have distorted EU foreign policy making, leading to general dissatisfaction with the CFSP. Yet, contrary to the received opinion, the policy-making process is under the influence of bureaucratic procedures slowly shifting towardsthe Community model.

Editorial Reviews

`Credit goes to Simon Nuttall for having taken the risk to write about this developing topic of most crucial importance for the future of European integration. He has broadened our knowledge and understanding of the policy-making processes which have led to the foundation stones of the mostambitious EU project since the Euro.'Ludger Kuhnhardt
