After 1992: The United States Of Europe

By Ernest Wistrich

Routledge, 1989, 154 pp.

A British subject born in Eastern Europe summarizes existing European institutions, principally, of course, the EEC, and makes a case for a federated Europe encompassing most of the nations of the continent. He supports the principle of "subsidiarity" (a term coined in 1981 that is now a Brussels buzzword) and implies that the political union "shall only act to carry out those tasks which may be undertaken more effectively in common than by the Member States acting separately."
