To Americans accustomed to unilateralism abroad and social belt-tightening at home, few books could be more revelatoryor controversialthan this timely, lucid, and informative portrait of the new European Union. Now comprising 25 nations and 450 million citizens, the EU has more people, more wealth, and more votes on every international body than the United States. It eschews military force but offers guaranteed health care and free university educations. And the new United States of Europe is determined to be a superpower. Tracing the EUs emergence from the ruins of World War II and its influence everywhere from international courts to supermarket shelves, T. R. Reid explores the challenge it poses to American political and economic supremacy. The United States of Europeis essential reading.

The author of five books in English and two in Japanese. Through his reporting for The Washington Post, his syndicated weekly column, and his lighthearted commentary from around the world for National Public Radio, he has become one of America's best-known foreign correspondents. Reid lives in London.
