Abstract:

"Viewing European integration both from the perspective of the American experience with federalism and from the personal experience of a Europe torn apart by war, Stein offers a unique understanding of the forces propelling and restraining European union. The essays collected here deal with the development of a harmonized set of law, the uses of the comparative legal method, the development of a common European foreign policy, the role of courts in the Union, and the dissolution of the Czech and Slovak federation, among other topics." "Thoughts from a Bridge is essential reading for all scholars interested in studying the European Union, the role of law in constructing new international structures, and the advantage and pitfalls of federalism."--Jacket.
