In this visionary study Robert A. Pastor, the Goodrich C. White Professor of Political Science at Emory University, considers and analyses the proposal to transform the North American free trade area into a common market along the lines of the European Common Market. Looking back at seven years of the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA), and forty years of European union, Pastor extracts lessons and analyses success and shortcomings to arrive at a detailed proposal and specific recommendations for new institutions and North American policies. The author addresses issues of sovereignty and national interest and concludes with a look ahead toward a Free Trade Area of the Americas. This book is the first of its kind to propose a detailed approach to a North American Community-different from the European Common Market but drawing lessons from its' experience. It will be of considerable interest to policymakers in the region as well as researchers and students of international political economy, world trade and foreign affairs.
