A comprehensive analysis that explains why voters in the Netherlands and France rejected the Constitution for Europe in recent referenda. In an insightful secondary analysis that compares the Philadelphia Convention of 1787 with the Brussels Convention that began in 2002 in terms of procedure and substance, the author introduces another telling dimension that helps to explain why the U.S. Constitution was ratified and why the Constitution for Europe was judged to be a lost cause once specific European voters rejected it.
