This study “remains the definitive analysis of the first crucial decade of the formulation of the Constitution of Europe by at the time a little-known court. It must be read by all serious scholars of European integration.”—Malcolm Feeley, in the new Foreword. In the early days of what would become the EU, it had a weak and ill-defined legislature and executive. And the European Court of Justice.
The classic 1971 study of how law and politics combine to predict a future for European integration, in what would become the EU. Scheingold analyzes the early data and reasons that law and regional integration will lead the future of the Union, not a U.S.-style constitutional development of federalism. It remains a fascinating window on the origins of the EU, plus a new Foreword by Joerg Fedtke.
Foundational and renowned study of how politicians and others use crime rates--and most of all the public perception of street crime, whether or not it is accurate--for their own purposes. Dr. Scheingold also provides a theoretical basis for his views. The follow-up to the landmark The Politics of Rights, this book is both supported in research and accessible and interesting to readers everywhere.
