Baden-Baden: Nomos Verlagsgesellschaft 1999 (Schriftenreihe des Europäischen Zentrums für Föderalismus-Forschung 10); 195 S.; brosch., 29,65 €; ISBN 3-7890-6395-9
Die im Titel des Bandes angesprochene Asymmetrie "refers to differentiation of status and rights sanctioned between component units. The question of different status and rights among federal units has engendered great interest in diverse federal nations: Canada, Belgium, Malaysia, Spain, South Africa, Germany and India. To a considerable degree, stability and governance in these nations involves maintaining balance by recognition of diversity while deflecting the 'secession potential' of certain forces." (9) Hintergrund des Bandes sind Treffen und Panels, die sich im Rahmen des IPSA Research Committee on Federalism and Federation über mehrere Jahre hinweg erstreckten.
