About this book

This book presents the first comprehensive analysis of the major treaty reforms over the past two decades, to consider whether the path from the Single European Act in 1985 to the present Constitutional Treaty has been pushed by the Franco-German tandem, or has been the result of leadership provided the Commission or smaller member states.

Reviews

'Derek Beach and Colette Mazzucelli's book clarifies one of the least understood phenomena in European policymaking: leadership. Intellectual laziness has allowed us to believe that leadership in European policymaking is derived from the charisma of statesmen like de Gaulle, Adenauer, Kohl, Mitterrand and Delors. This book demonstrates that leadership has structural causes and must be seen in context. In fact, leadership is all about creating consensus under conditions of bounded rationality. Leadership in the Big Bangs of European Integration is an important step forward in our understanding of the European Union.' - Stefan Collignon, Political Economist, London School of Economics and Harvard University
