The Single European Market, implemented on 1st January 1993, marks the most profound and far-reaching development in Britain's history since the end of World War II. It directly affects the lives of everyone in Britain, transforming not just the way the country does business, but radically altering its political complexion. This revised edition provides up-to-date information on this revolutionary development in British and European history. The revisions include full details of the Edinburgh summit of December 1992, and considers in depth the likely future of the battered European Monetary System, the prospects facing a recession-torn European Community and the full implications of Maastricht.
