    The issue we are concerned with in this paper is European integration in the period 1982 to 1996. These are years in which the European Union developed rapidly as an integrated economy and a multi-level polity (Marks, Hooghe, and Blank 1996; Hooghe and Marks 1999). The Single European Act (1986) and the Maastricht Treaty (1993) created the basis for economic and monetary union within a supranational polity that explicitly weakened national sovereignty. As a result, European integration became increasingly salient for national political parties and mass publics. The first section of this paper sets out the hypotheses that motivate our analysis. The following section explains how we operationalize these hypotheses and sets out the data we use to evaluate them. The final section summarizes our statistical analysis and its implications.
