Is there a justification for European integration? The Idea of a European Superstate examines this--the most basic--question raised by the European Union. In doing so, Glyn Morgan assesses the arguments put forward by eurosceptics and their critics. In a challenge to both sides of the debate, Morgan argues in support of a European superstate. Unless Europe forms a unitary sovereign state, Europe will remain, so he maintains, weak and dependent for its security on the United States.

The Idea of a European Superstate reshapes the debate on European political integration. It throws down a gauntlet to eurosceptics and euro-enthusiasts alike. While employing the arguments of contemporary political philosophy and international relations, this book is written in an accessible fashion that anyone interested in European integration can understand.

Review:

"Glyn Morgan's book represents a refreshing approach to the literature on the nature and future of the European integration project. . . . [B]y tackling the issue of justification rather than legitimation, Morgan tackles the crucial issue that appears to be the biggest current obstacle to further European constitutionalization."--Matt McCullock, Journal of Contemporary European Studies

"This well-written, well-argued, and challenging essay offers both a strong contribution to the debate about the shape of European integration and an argument for the relevance of political philosophy to international relations."--Foreign Affairs Magazine

"Morgan's arguments show that a more integrated European state can be justified on grounds very different from those usually offered, and perhaps this is his most significant contribution. . . . Increasingly, it is clear, the demand for effective government cannot be met by individual nation-states on the old Westphalian model. Whether it is federal, unitary or post-sovereign, some sort of European state seems to offer the most appealing way of meeting this demand."--John Quiggin and Henry Farrell, Australian Financial Review
