    [From the Introduction]. Three crucial dimensions deserve an analysis in comparative terms of how the EU looked half a century ago and how it is today. The first is related to the different nature of its leadership, then and now. The second calls the attention to the fact that the present anniversary is in a way unfair and inaccurate in anchoring the birth of the European Union solely on the Treaty of Rome of 1957 and the implementation of the trio labeled European Communities with the addition of the EEC and EURATOM to the original ECSC. The third, closely connected with the spirit of the second, is a subtle, but decisive, contrastive approach and theory applied to regional integration then and now, and how this issue affected the process of the European Union.
