  From EC to EU The evolution of the European Community and its transition to theEuropean Union has been far from smooth or predictable. Assessing keyepisodes, such as France’s decision to absent herself from the Council of Ministers in 1965 and the turbulent events of 1973, Richard McAllisterexplores the history of European integration from the 1950s to theratification of the Treaty on European Union at Maastricht and beyond.Written in a pacey and engaging way, this study reveals the full insidestory of the political manoeuvrings behind the development of theEuropean Union.Drawing extensively on contemporary reactions, Richard McAllisterdemonstrates how unforeseen crises and events have been as significantas the ‘grand designs’ in shaping the EC/U. In particular, he looks at theevolving debates in four areas:ãthe organisation of the EC/U’s different institutions;ãpolicy development;ãthe international role of the EC/U;ãits geographical scope and membership.This study is an important contribution to an understanding of the past,present and uncertain future of European integration.
