10 Colum. J. Eur. L. 415 (2004)
Much recent attention has been paid to the European Union’s drafting of a formal constitution. Legal scholars have scrutinized the proposed provisions and political pundits have postulated as to ability of a formal constitution to modify and/or expand the collective conception of Europe. As a result, Between Competition and Free Movement: Economic Constitutional Law of the European Community, by Julio Baquero Cruz, reads with a touch of irony. Cruz forcefully contends that the European Union already has a constitution – even if it is not of the type that most Americans are accustomed to dealing with.
