Sir Leon Brittan, Vice-President of the European Commission, has worked at the very highest levels of the European Union for most of the last decade. Sir Leon has shaped some of the landmarks of European policy, including the development of new political and economic relations between the EC and the former satellite states of the Soviet Union, has been Europe's architect of the most ambitious global trade deal ever undertaken, and has been responsible for the dramatic evolution in Europe's competition policy and the building of strong European relations with the United States, China, Japan, and many other countries. In this publication, some of Sir Leon's most important speeches are gathered together. They explain in clear and succinct terms what the implications of European integration are in the context of an increasingly globalised international economy. How should traditional concepts of sovereignty be adapted? What is the real logic and purpose of European Economic and Monetary Union? How should the transatlantic relationship develop after the Cold War? These and many other questions are tackled in a comprehensive and readily accessible way.
