This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: 'Insightful and beautifully written, Jean Monnet and Canada advances an intriguing argument on whether Jean Monnet's visits to Canada helped shape his role as a pragmatic visionary and an architect of postwar Europe. Until now, little research has been done on how Monnet's work with the European Coal and Steel Community was influenced by his early career. Trygve Ugland has clearly combed the literature on the subject, and does an excellent job going beyond the written record to learn how Monnet may have experienced the energy and opportunities exhibited in North America.'.

Jean Monnet (1888-1979) is often viewed as the chief architect of the European Coal and Steel Community, which over time evolved into today's European Union. Monnet spent his early years working as an agent for his father, a cognac producer. It was this experience that took him to Scandinavia, England, the United States, and most importantly Canada, where he was exposed to the country's unique form of federalism.
Drawing on a wide variety of empirical sources, including unpublished documents, correspondence, and original historical data extracted from archives both in Canada and Europe, Trygve Ugland's Jean Monnet and Canada argues that the extensive period of time Monnet spent in Canada between 1907 and 1914 had a formative influence on the achievements of his later years, particularly on the institutional 'construction of Europe.'
Über den Autor: Trygve Ugland is an associate professor in the Department of Political Studies at Bishop's University.
