Contributions from professors in the humanities, sociology, classics, and the arts provide the book with a broader dimension by taking the topic of a new, united Europe beyond the usually discussed economic and political aspects. The diverse essays show that a united Europe is far more complex than anticipated by the architects of the Maastricht treaty.

From the beginning, the European Union had a clear objective: to permanently consolidate peace in Europe after two of the bloodiest wars in history. This was supplemented after the fall of communism with a second priority: to become an economic power capable of counterbalancing America's growing dominance. The current state of Europe, however, has sparked a fierce debate on just how well the economy is really doing in comparison to the U.S.--and whether Europe can continue to compete and maintain its generous welfare state. Written by one of Europe's most well-known and respected economists, Europe at the Crossroads analyzes whether the EU is fulfilling its economic and social targets, outlining in a simple and understandable way the main issues facing the EU today and in the future. Drawing upon the recent official data and literature, Guillermo de la Dehesa seeks solutions for Europe by comparing its situation to that of the U.S. and revealing how much more can be achieved in the areas of efficiency, productivity, and innovation. De la Dehesa documents the EU's persistent economic underperformance in recent decades and examines the cause of its slower growth. He then presents a comprehensive blueprint of reforms for increased prosperity and deeper social cohesion, which addresses: The main economic challenge facing both the U.S. and the EU: the impact of aging on public expenditures How to enrich the EU's policy and institutional environments to enhance business conditions for existing firms and new entrepreneurial activities Necessary structural reforms--welfare state, labor and product markets Fostering a knowledge society though increased investments in R&D and higher education The difficulties in implementing the Lisbon Strategy (major strategic goals for improving the EU's economic efficiency) and methods for meeting those challenges Thought-provoking, expertly researched, and brilliantly evaluated, Europe at the Crossroads presents the most informed discussion on the current and future state of Europe's economy.

Revolutionary change in Eastern Europe and the Soviet Union; civil strife in the Balkans; the heavy burden of German reunification; war in the Gulf and its dramatic aftermath; the completion of the internal market in 1992 and the management of two highly complicated Intergovernmental Conferences -- more than ever before its history, the European Community has to operate strong pressure. This volume captures these problems in a systematic way and presents suggestions as to how the Twelve could cope with them, using the Dutch EC-Presidency as a reference point. The subjects dealt with include: the EC Presidentcy in a new European setting the European Community and the wider Europe European foreign policy and security cooperation; `1992' and the Common Transport Policy Economic and social cohension in a Community of regions the politics of Economic and Monetary Union. The chapters are written by experienced specialists from both the international academic world (economics, international relations, European law), as well as from the European institutions. Together they provide a comprehensive and unique survey of the profound challenges confronting the European Community in the early 1990s.
