The decision w ill have far-reaching consequences both for Norway and the EEC. This book is an attempt to understand that decision of 1972 and to examine its effectson Norwegian-EEC relations in the following five years. The first part cov ers the period up to September 1972. Beginning with a description of the Norwegian economy, politics and foreign policy in 1969, it analyses post-war Norwegian attitudes towards Europe and European integration and the way theNordek debate of 1968-70 already revealed many of the themes and political positions of the subsequent referendum campaign. It then charts the intera cting course of domestic politics, membership negotiations and referendum campaign. [...] Part two covers the years 1972-77, its chapters describing in turn how the immediate post-referendum years of fast rising living standards and oil exploitation cushioned Norwegians economicall and psychologically from the full effects of their decision; how the Labour and Conservativeparties, defeated over the EEC, went on to win the post-referendum struggl e for control of the Political system; Norway';s relations with the EEC in fisheries questions, the main source of friction in these years; and the reasons why Labour's 'active European policy' failed to live up to its name."- from the rear cover.
