    Abstract

    [From the Introduction]. At the outset of the preparations for this project, in early 1986, stood academic frustration: frustations on the state of the European Community, frustrations on the state of research on European integration and - not least - a critical evaluation of the relevance of the field for political analysis and political decisionmaking. The European Community seemed doomed to degenerate into a museum of European politics, filled with the masterpieces of political rhetoric and symbolic action. The West European model had entered a stage of stagnation; its attraction was neither economically nor politically based. The White Paper issued by the European Commission by the end of 1985 and the Single European Act of 1986 received mixed attention. From the insider's point of view the SEA offered too little to generate a new impulse for European integration and the White Paper on the internal market initially failed the crucial test for credibility: The political horizon of the time was crisis management of the coming month, political debate on European issues was shaped by the rhythm of the Presidency of the Council.
