The European Community has long been the largest trading bloc in the world. It is also on the way to becoming the world's largest integrated economic zone. Its trade, aid and development cooperation policies are therefore of great importance to developing countries. At the same time, the developing countries have continued to be of interest to the Community, both as outlets for its exports and capital investments and as sources of raw materials. This 1993 book analyses and evaluates European Community trade, aid and industrial policies towards developing countries - their origin, main features, logic, evolution and effectiveness in reaching the goals assigned to them. The author sums up the state of Europe's development policies by describing them as regional in scope, colonial in geographical emphasis, discriminatory in their effects and lacking in overall cogency. This incisive re-evaluation illustrates the different strategies the EC countries might pursue in their relations with the outside world as they progress towards fuller economic integration.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Grilli's arguments about the nature of the EC's regionalism are compelling ... ' David Lubin, Financial Times
"In this book the information provided is abundant, fair, and lucid. Grilli's conclusions will no doubt lead others to reexamine their own views." Journal of Economic Literature
"Enzo R. Grilli puts the development cooperation activities of 'fortress Europe' under the microscope and subjects them to a comprehensive and critical examination in The European Community and the Developing Countries." Finance and Development
"Enzo Grilli does us a particularly useful service by describing the aid policies and programs of the European Community....There is relatively little written on the aid policies of the EC and certainly no book-length treatment of the quality of this one. Grilli does more than describe the policies of the EC towards the developing countries; he provides a useful analysis of the politics behind those policies." Carol Lancaster, International Economic Insights
"[A] much-needed introduction to EC Associationism...." Choice
"...destined to become a standard reference in the literature on relations between the European Community (EC) and the developing world. Comprehensive in coverage, structured in analysis, and meticulous in detail (both statistical and documentary), it also advances a controversial thesis which is likely to become the centrepiece of policy debate." Ravi Kanbur, Journal of African Economies
"Enzo Grilli's book will be welcomed by students on development courses with a North-South aid and trade dimension, and on European Community courses with an external policy dimension. It updates and widens the coverage provided by existing textbooks of the EC's set of aid and trade policies with developing countries....an invaluable mine of information for a generation of postgraduate students." Christopher Stevens, Development Policy Review
"...a good introduction to the issues... the very comprehensive and up-to-date list of references will be invaluable to researchers in the area." The Economic Journal
"...a useful and highly readable review of EC economic relations with developing countries....Overall, this book is a worthwhile addition to the literature on the EC, and will serve as a valuable reference for researchers interested in EC policies toward LDCs. One can only hope that Grilli's contribution will stimulate others to undertake analysis of many of the phenomena that Grilli systematically lays forth." Anne O. Krueger, Journal of Comparative Economics
