Abstract:

The author analyzes the current status of European integration and how it may affect U.S. interests. He examines the implications of the Maastricht Treaty, particularly in the areas of security and defense, and maintains that Western European leaders have lost sight of the true meaning and potential value of European integration. This, he explains, accounts for the European Unions seeming inability to respond effectively to international crises. The author concludes that unless the European Union reassesses its priorities and policies, the fundamental aspiration of maintaining European unity may be lost.
