'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. Above all this is an outstanding example of the intellectual stimulation and exciting practical prescriptions that can be generated when scholars are willing to open their minds to the insights of disciplines other than their own. If nothing else, Weiler's book is concrete proof that an understanding of the role of law in Europe is impossible without a clear consideration of politics - political theory, political institutions and political behavior - as well as economics, sociology, international relations, history and even a good dose of religion.' Gordon Silverstein, Law and Politics Book Review
'This book brings together some of Weiler's best known published essays and articles, most of which have been revised. Like most collections it is a book to be visited on different occasions rather than read at one sitting ... The thoughtful arguments and insights provided by Weiler merit the attention they have long received.' Political Studies
