Description

Maastricht and Beyond is a critical assessment of the European Union brought into being by the Treaty of Maastricht. A team of experts provide a clear and thorough appraisal of the main provisions of the Treaty - including the three pillared structure of Economic and Monetary Union, common foreign and security policy and home affairs and justice - showing how these elements will change the function and eventually the character of the European Union. The book draws conclusions from the Maastricht process for the next reform of the Union in 1996, and it examines the practicalities of achieving a fully-fledged federal democracy, making proposals for a constitutional settlement.

Maastricht and Beyond will appeal to both informed generalists and to students and scholars who want a fresh approach to the stale arguments over Maastricht, who seek enlightenment over what the Treaty is for and who have the curiosity to look forward to 1996 and beyond.

Reviews

'For anybody who wants penetrating expert analysis, edited by three of Britain's most authoritative Euro-watchers, this is essential reading.' - Ian Davidson, The Financial Times

'The essays are short enough to be taken in quick individual doses; I can recommend one a day on retiring to bed. Your Euro-dreams (or nightmares) will therefore bare far more resemblance to reality.' - Jonathon Fryer, Liberator

'Experts in the field will find this a uniformly excellent commentary.' - Christopher Brewin, Journal of Common Market Studies
