Drawing from archival sources in six countries, Brusse (history and international relations, U. of Groningen) reconstructs the commercial policy origins of European integration. She finds that immediately after the war countries were looking for economic stability, welfare, and commercial disarmament to end the trade wars of the 1930s, and finding existing solutions inadequate, created new ones.
