A. I. UTKIN. The Ideology of Bourgeois Europeism - Its Rise and Development
The article discusses growing integration trends in Western Europe, which has found expression in Europeism. Its underlying idea is consolidation of the independence of the West European capitalist countries on the basis of the EEC. The author singles out two main directions in contemporary Europeism, surreptitious promotion of plans to ensure the independent development and consolidation of the EEC on the pretext that the process is of definite value for the USA, and open advocacy of a separatist course for the West European capitalist states. The article discloses the class character and assesses the perspectives of this influential trend of bourgeois political thought.
