European Political Co-operation (EPC) is the process by which Member States of the European Community co-ordinate their foreign policies. This book sets out to describe the development of EPC and to trace the influences which have made it what it is today. The arguments about transfer of sovereignty in foreign policy-making, the influence of the United States, the leading role played by France, and the effect on policy of finding organizational solutions in reaction to crises are all examined through a historical account of events over more than thirty years. EPC is the basis from which the European foreign policy of the future will be developed. This is increasingly significant both for the institutional development of the Community and for its impact on world events, yet the procedures and political pressures which go towards shaping EPC are little known and frequently misunderstood. This book will improve understanding of a new form of diplomatic process, of great interest for the future, but which has barely begun.

MEDIA REVIEWS
`One of the occupational hazards of writing books about Europe at the present time is the danger of obsolescence. Happily, this book is an exception.' International Affairs
`important new book ... As well as being a practitioner who has worked in and with the system since he moved from the British Foreign Office to Brussels as a Euro-diplomat 20 years ago, he has been a leading participant in the academic study of the subject, not least through the sequence of significant analyses he has contributed to the Yearbook of European Law. His comprehensive new study appears at a very timely moment ... anyone seriously interested in the subject will learn a very great deal from its detailed and vivid reconstruction of the events. It will provide an indispensable basis for future research on the many issues it considers, and must long remain the standard account of the development, organization, and achievements of European Political Co-operation during its first 20 years.' Roger Morgan, Times Higher Education Supplement
`This welcome book is written by an insider with clarity and insight ... In short, this book repays close reading and is a valuable addition to the literature for students of the EC and international relations.' Political Studies
`European Political Co-operation is easy to read without being simplistic and offers at the end of each chapter a selection of further reading for the interested reader. The comprehendive bibliography and index make the book appealing for students with various levels of previous knowledge. Nuttall thus allows the reader to get a preliminary understanding of EPC and entices him or her to further research of a subject that is both complex and evolving.' West European Politics
`This book reflects his detailed knowledge of the workings of the EC in general and the Commission in particular ... It is, of course, accurate, thorough and detailed - in fact a compendium of knowledge acquired through hard graft and, doubtless, many late night meetings.' The Round Table
`This book aims to provide a greater understanding of a little-known process.' European Access
`this book, which is the most comprehensive account of EPC yet available in English, is to be welcomed' Diplomacy and Statecraft
