A Constitution for Europe: Why do we need it? Is it really better than the current treaty-based system? Which difficulties faces the ratification process? This book answers these questions and provides an analysis of the Treaty establishing a Constitution for Europe. It visualizes the huge importance of the document for a working EU, emphasizes the prospects of a really unified continent and shows that Europe as well as the EU stands at the crossroads of its future fate. Hopefully, its politicians and people do not decide to turn into a blind alley.
