Jean Monnet: The Path to European Unity is a collection of essays, first-hand accounts and critical commentaries about one of the key architects of a united Europe. Close friends who supported Monnet’s goals of a European Community in partnership with the United States are balanced by those whose affection for the French citizen of action did not extend to complete acceptance of his views of a supranational Europe. Accounts of his early acquaintances are matched with the views of professional historians of the next generation. George W. Ball, one of Monnet’s oldest and closest friends, assesses the man and the essays in his introduction.
