ABSTRACT
The article explores the central issues confronting the European Community (EC) as of October 1972. The external commercial policy of the EC suffers from the same set of tensions--between the force of inertia on the one hand and the inability to articulate long-term goals on the other. The EC has a built-in lobby to create a set of linkages between the core area and its periphery in Europe and North Africa. These linkages are paradoxically strong enough to be destructive of the international commercial system, but too weak to replace it with a system built upon a set of coherent rules. Restricted in their ability to implement or reform domestic programs, the European governments have been carrying out new transcendental foreign policies. These policies are focused less upon tangible than on elusive objectives and are designed to create the illusion in the minds of members of the electorate that the governments have been engaged in significant and even novel activities.
