    [From the Introduction]. Since the establishment of the European Economic Community (EEC) in 1957, the agricultural sector has played a central role in developing the integral economic, commercial and structural policy of the new Foundation formulated in the Treaty of Rome.

Secondly, the agricultural sector was, historically speaking, a major source of claims and tensions amongst European nations and countries. Thirdly, European farmers had (and still have) a strong political influence in the parliamentarian regimes in the democratic systems of Europe.
