This article is primarily concerned with the political\ud economy of British trade union policy towards the\ud European Community (EC) in the 1960s and 1970s. Its\ud aim is to reassess union engagement with the EC in this\ud period &om a viewpoint informed by the now established\ud perspective of world-order analysis in international\ud political economy (Cox, 1981; Lipietz, 1992; Gamble 81\ud Payne, 1996; Payne, 2005). The article is specifically\ud concerned with the re-evaluation in this light of two\ud notable but contrasting and substantially contradictory\ud perspectives on British unions and Europe: Dorfman\ud (1977) and Teague (1985, 1989, later incorporated into\ud Teague & Grahl, 1992). In its concluding section, the\ud article briefly considers the implications of this\ud reassessment for British union policy in relation to the\ud contemporary EU
