CHOICE Review

One of four volumes in an American Enterprise Institute series on US-European relations, this book offers an important contribution to the growing literature on European integration. Editors Ornstein (AEI) and Perlman (Pittsburgh) have pulled together an interesting, international group of contributors with a particular focus on similarities between the process of contemporary European integration and the experience of the US in the late 18th century. Among the topics explored are the nature of European federalism, the role of interest groups in the European political process, and public opinion in Europe about the changes taking place. There is generally a spirit of guarded optimism about both the prospects for and desirability of the European experiment. One disturbing concern is the negative public reaction to the influx of non-Europeans, a result, in part, of demographic changes that require the Community increasingly to depend on African and Middle Eastern labor. Brief but useful commentaries help this volume avoid some of the fragmentation of similar group efforts. Recommended for advanced undergraduate and graduate students.-A. L. Springer, Bowdoin College
