The creation and expansion of European Community law has brought many changes. This book considers the integration of EC law into national law from three perspectives - public international law; EC law; and national law - and suggests that if the demands of EC law are to be fully accommodated, they will result in a revolution in national law, with potential for radical conflict. The author examines the legitimation of national law and of EC law and questions whether EC law can tolerate disuniformity in its application. He proposes that this dilemma of revolt or revolution is the most serious constitutional problem facing European and national constitutional law. This book is an invaluable study for academics and students of EC law, public international law and constitutional law.
