This book offers an assessment of the hopes, fears, expectations and preparedness of Britain, France and Germany at the approach of the 1992 deadline. It examines, both at the national and European level, the three key areas of business and economics, foreign and defence policy, and politics and political culture, both country by country and in a comparative mode. The questions it addresses are the following: to what extent has Europe began to impact on each of these societies? In what ways have national cultures, mentalities and practices begun to change as a result of Europe? Are they changing in the same direction, or are they producing an anti-European reaction, and what is likely to be the effect of such forces?

Introduction - the old continent in turmoil, a new one in the making, Mairi Maclean and Jolyon Howorth. Part 1 Economics and business - new worlds to conquer: the unfinished chrysalis - market forces and protectionist reflexes in France, Mairi Maclean; Germany - the ambivalent insider, Jutta Helm; Britain - financial sophistication and industrial wastelands, Maurice Basle.

Part 3 Politics and political culture - national sovereignty or supranationality?: the two souls of Marianne - national sovereignty versus supranationality in Europe, Rainer Riemenschneider; the Euro-Germans - national identity and European integration in Germany, Eva Kolinsky; Westminster versus Brussels - the last crusade, Alan Butt Philip.
