    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. European Community studies have been much more preoccupied with the process of regional integration than with its content, more with policy convergence than with politics. This is partly due to the widespread currency of a relatively unexamined premise which posits a national statelike entity as the expected terminus of the EC system. I believe that this implicit metatheoretical expectation has been powerfully reinforced by academic and policy-making constituencies supportive of the integrative enterprise. Unfortunately, and speaking as a supporter of European integration, this stance is increasingly problematic on both normative and analytical grounds. This paper attempts to make the case for redirecting the focus of EC studies to take account systematically of the role of politics, ideology and the content of integrative schemes.
