Comparative Constitutional Federalism: Europe and America


This collection of essays provides an analysis, based on the United States experience, of problems of federalism and integration, and provides useful comparative insights into the processes that may follow the completion of the European common market in 1992. Drawn from a conference on comparative constitutional federalism, the essays address such topics as the time needed for the U.S. to be considered a unified nation, the constitutional law of interregional migration and trade in the U.S., how federal systems can respond to and help preserve diverse cultures, and the use of local guarantees of fundamental rights as a supplement to national norms.
