High-Tech Europe: The Politics of International Cooperation
by Wayne Sandholtz
Publisher: University of California Press 1992
Number of pages: 320
A study of cooperative efforts in the high-tech industries of Europe.

Governments have recognized for decades the dynamic role played by microelectronics, computers, and telecommunications in the modern economy. Although Europe's deficiencies in these crucial sectors had long been acknowledged, it was not until the 1980s that European nations began collaborating to develop and promote high-tech industries.
