Review(s) from previous edition"The main strength of the material is the way in which it combines reasonably theoretical approaches with presentationa and discussions of EU policy. - Geoffrey D. Gooch, Department of Management and Economics, Linkoeping University, Sweden
"This book provides a clear analytical framework to understand developments within the EU, not just a description of EU policies. Chapters 5, 9, 12, 13 and 14 are all particularly strong in this regard." - Dr Jonathan Perraton, Department of Economics, University of Sheffield.
