Heinrich Neisser / Bea Verschraegen, Die Europäische Union. Anspruch und Wirklichkeit.... The timely new publication on the European Union by Heinrich Neisser and Bea Verschraegen, which manages to incorporate the most recent amendments adopted at the Nice Council, is mainly intended to serve as a course-book for students of law and political science. It is interesting for the lawyers to see the different em- phasis of such a book—also expressed in the book's subtitle speaking of the "vi- sion and reality" of the EU: the historic background and the political reality of the current constitution of Europe is dealt with far more broadly than in most compa- rable treatises on EU law. It is divided in five main parts for which the co-authors have clearly indicated their respective responsibilities. Part I outlines the history from an economic com- munity to a political union and portrays the present political system of the EU. Its latter pages contain an interesting discussion of the current debate on a European constitution including the main problems on the road to such a constitution, rang- ing from power-sharing between member states and the Union as well as between the institutions of the EU to the issue of more democratic decision-making and more flexible integration.

Abstract

The timely new publication on the European Union by Heinrich Neisser and Bea Verschraegen, which manages to incorporate the most recent amendments adopted at the Nice Council, is mainly intended to serve as a course-book for students of law and political science. It is interesting for the lawyers to see the different em- phasis of such a book—also expressed in the book's subtitle speaking of the "vi- sion and reality" of the EU: the historic background and the political reality of the current constitution of Europe is dealt with far more broadly than in most compa- rable treatises on EU law. It is divided in five main parts for which the co-authors have clearly indicated their respective responsibilities. Part I outlines the history from an economic com- munity to a political union and portrays the present political system of the EU. Its latter pages contain an interesting discussion of the current debate on a European constitution including the main problems on the road to such a constitution, rang- ing from power-sharing between member states and the Union as well as between the institutions of the EU to the issue of more democratic decision-making and more flexible integration.
