PostHistory of the European Commission (Angel Vinas, Belgium, 05/19/14 3:39 am)
Jose Ignacio Soler´s post of 18 May is very welcome to a debate in which I´ve felt more than unwilling to participate. However, to our rather Europhobic friends, I´d recommend to have a look at the website of the EU Office of Publications:
There they´ll find the second volume of the History of the European Commission, 1973-1986, written by an international team of historians, economists and researchers on the basis of archival evidence, a systematic analysis of secondary bibliography and more than 200 oral history interviews.
The third volume, up to 2000, will be started shortly.JE comments: Many thanks to Ángel Viñas for the recommendation. I should add that the volume can be downloaded free as a PDF file--a nice EU perk!
