    The recent publication of Andrew Moravcsik’s The Choice for Europe invites re-examination of the EC project. It is the most ambitious, well-informed and complete attempt yet to develop a historical interpretation-what he calls an “analytic narrative”-based on a careful empirical analysis of critical events. Such an interpretation looks for the underlying motive for freer trade and closer union and finds it in the commercial exporting interests, strongly intra-sectoral (pp. 494-496), of European states. His theory of EC negotiations revolves around the strength of national sectoral interests in industry and agriculture. He thus confirms the findings of Alan Milward and his school, who have stressed the importance of exports and national political economy in a broader sense in the formation of European institution.
