Overview

In a series of highly accessible discussions concerning the legal framework of the European Communities and the European Union, Joseph Weiler describes the gradual strengthening of transnational European institutions at the expense of national legislators. The Constitution of Europe thus provides from a legal perspective a balanced and uniquely authoritative critique of the attractions and demerits of the goal of European integration.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This book certainly should be read not only by those with an interest in European law and European political integration, but it should be read as well by anyone with an interest in how legal and political actors and institutions shape and constrain each other...Weiler writes with a clear, engaging, and entertaining prose...it is a book that would make sense in any number of graduate seminars, and a number of chapters would work rather well for advanced undergraduates as well." Law and Politics Book Review
