520    "This book analyses the founding years of consumer law and
       consumer policy in Europe. It combines two dimensions: the
       making of national consumer law and the making of European
       consumer law, and how both are intertwined. The chapters 
       on Germany, Italy, the Nordic countries and the United 
       Kingdom serve to explain the economic and the political 
       background which led to different legal and policy 
       approaches in the then old Member States from the 1960s 
       onwards. The chapter on Poland adds a different layer, the
       one of a former socialist country with its own consumer 
       law and how joining the EU affected consumer law at the 
       national level. The making of European consumer law 
       started in the 1970s rather cautiously, but gradually the 
       European Commission took an ever stronger position in 
       promoting not only European consumer law but also in 
       supporting the building of the European Consumer 
       Organisation (BEUC), the umbrella organisation of the 
       national consumer bodies. The book unites the early 
       protagonists who were involved in the making of consumer 
       law in Europe: Guido Alpa, Ludwig Krämer, Ewa Letowska, 
       Hans-W Micklitz, Klaus Tonner, Iain Ramsay, and Thomas 
       Wilhelmsson, supported by the younger generation Aneta 
       Wiewiórowska Domagalska, Mateusz Grochowski, and Koen 
       Docter, who reconstructs the history of BEUC. Niklas Olsen
       and Thomas Roethe analyse the construction of this policy 
       field from a historical and sociological perspective. This
       book offers a unique opportunity to understand a legal and
       political field, that of consumer law and policy, which 
       plays a fundamental role in our contemporary societies"--
