The Twenty G-7 Summits


The Group of the Seven most industrialized countries in the world, which goes by the name ofG-7, is now twenty years old. In a way, it enters the annals of History. On the occasion of G-7's twentieth anniversary the Adnkronos Libri Publisher, in collaboration with the lAI (Istituto Affari Internazionali), has decided to publish this book in the hope that it will serve both short and long-term purposes. For the short-term, it seeks to provide all the participants in the summit in Naples with a timely and updated source of information which will assist them in the proceedings of the conference. Moreover, in the long-term, the publisher hopes that this volume will become a durable and useful reference book for those readers who are involved, whether professionally or not, in politics, economics, information. To this end, the second section of the volume, containing the complete collection of the G-7 Official Declarations, arranged in chronological order, is preceded by an essay which offers a comparative survey going through the main issues subsequently dealt with in the summit conferences; additionally, it outlines the topical problems hanging over the future of the Naples summit. The book also includes a short study where the G-7 conferences are reviewed in their historical contexts, from Rambouillet to the immediate present.
