This up to date accessible book - written by a leading commentator on European politics - focuses on the highly topical and contentious issue of political union. What is meant by political union? What do the terms federalism and subsidiarity mean in the context of 1992 and of the new European architecture? Is European integration inexorably proceeding towards federal statehood? Professor Lodge examines the argument that the EC is moving towards a form of federal union and what this means for the way in which political power is exercised both in the EC's members states and among the EC's institutions. Many of the 1992 goals can be thwarted by EC institutions, notably the European Parliament, retaliating against member governments who refuse to advance the cause of EC-level parliamentary democracy and authority. The scene is set for a major political showdown. This unique authoritative book will be essential reading for all students concerned with the politics of the European Community.
