This collected volume of essays focuses on two complementary themes - firstly, the theoretical approaches to the study of European political cooperation (EPC) and secondly, the empirical analysis of EPC activity. The volume does not argue one particular approach to the study of EPC, but rather presents competing and often conflicting theoretical perspectives. At the empirical level, a future research agenda is suggested and it is argued that EPC research should become comparative in nature. Chapter one considers EPC from a Realist paradigm; chapter two develops this theme by placing EPC within the context of bipolarity; while a world system approach to EPC is argued for in chapter three. In chapter four the author applies his earlier work on federalism to the analysis of EPC. Chapter five considers the impact or "presence" of the Community in international relations, while chapters six to nine are more empirical in nature. In the last chapter, the author analyzes the instruments available to EPC, in particular, that of sanctions.
