This comprehensive book explores the radical changes confronting the European telecommunications sector as the long-standing system of separate and state-controlled monopolies has been replaced by a single market based on competition and common norms set by the European Union. After retracing the development of common policies, Giorgio Natalicchi analyzes the role of external and internal forces, such as global competition, national governments, interest groups, and supranational institutions. Employing a variety of conceptual lenses, the author also convincingly demonstrates the implications of the telecoms case for theories of European integration. What emerges is a more complex picture than the one portrayed by current paradigms. NatalicchiOs findings justify a new 'syncretic' approach that combines hypotheses from both the theories on regional integration and those on EU policymaking into a single explanatory model. With its combination of exhaustive research and clear analysis, this authoritative study will be invaluable for scholars in EU studies, comparative politics, and international political economy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Natalicchi adroitly exploits the telecommunications sector in his effort to unravel the 'polycentric' and 'multilayered' nature of the emerging Euro-polity. His findings are not going to comfort unequivocally either inter-governmentalists or neo-functionalists. Advocates of these competing approaches to European integration will discover, not just that the EU contains features of both, but that their significance varies over time. The accent in this path-breaking study is on the peculiar dynamics of policy making in which self-reinforcing and competitive mechanisms interact and change in their relative importance. Natalicchi is cautious about generalizing beyond the telecommunications sector, but I cannot imagine that there is a serious student of European integration who will not learn something from his analysis. -- Philippe C. Schmitter, Professor Emeritus, European University Institute
As a theoretically sophisticated and empirically insightful analysis of telecommunications policy, this book is a must for all interested in European regulatory policy and its impact. -- Adrienne Heritier, Max Planck Project Group
This is a well-written and well-researched work. It makes a major contribution to a growing field by linking regulation at different levels-international, EU, and national. * Governance *
This authoritative and balanced book makes a significant contribution to the burgeoning literature on telecommunications policy and the developing academic theoretical literature on the European Union. The research is extraordinarily careful and comprehensive. -- Alan Cafruny, Hamilton College
