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.
