Editorial Reviews

Review

"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

Book Description

In a series of highly accessible discussions concerning the legal framework of the European Communities and the European Union, this study describes the gradual strengthening of transnational European institutions at the expense of national legislators.

Format: Paperback
"The Constitution of Europe: "Do the New Clothes Have an Emperor? and other essays on European Integration" is an excellent book that I borrowed from a nearby library by chance. Truth to be told, I plan to buy this book even though I have already read it, due to the fact that it is the kind of book you just want to have. This book includes several essays and articles written by J. H. H. Weiler on European integration, from different points of view. That variety can be seen simply by reading the titles of some of the essays in this book, for example "The transformation of Europe", "Introduction: the reformation of European constitutionalism", "European democracy and its critics: polity and system" and "To be an European citizen: Eros and civilization".

Those essays were written by the author during a period of 10 years, and were finally revised, updated (when it was necessary) and compiled in this book, released in 1999. According to Weiler, he considered rewriting all these essays into a monograph, but settled on keeping their format in order to allow the reader to choose exactly what he wanted to read, according to his interests and available time. In Weiler's own words, "I expect that no one will read all the essays and articles in this book- not even my own doctoral students. But I do hope that many more will read some of its essays and articles that would be the case if this were a scholarly monograph of equal size".

I specially liked the fact that every chapter (that is, each individual essay) can be read as a standalone, because I think that allows everybody to choose exactly where to begin reading this book, and gives the opportunity of not reading something if the theme isn't particularly appealing.
