9780199685370: The European Union: How Does It Work? (The New European Union Series)

Featuring work from an expert line-up of both leading scholars and practitioners with firsthand experience of the EU's institutions, The European Union: How does it work?, Fourth Edition, provides a unique and engaging perspective on how the EU works both in theory and practice. Concise and accessible without sacrificing breadth of coverage or accuracy, it is an ideal introduction for students with no background in the subject. The selections cut through the topic's complexity to equip students with the knowledge and skills they need to master the subject.

The fourth edition reflects the ongoing changes in the EU in the aftermath of the Eurozone crises and the global context in which the EU exists. It also features expanded coverage of theories of European integration and policy making, and considers the hugely topical debate about the UK's future in the EU.

About the Author:


Daniel Kenealy is Deputy Director of the Academy of Government and Lecturer in Public Policy at The University of Edinburgh.

Review:

"Nowhere are students in introductory courses likely to find a clearer and more balanced treatment of the broad institutional design and policy trends of the most successful experiment in peaceful international cooperation in world history."
--Andrew Moravcsik, Princeton University

"The European Union: how does it work? once again provides an excellent introduction to European integration for students and other interested readers alike. The individual contributions are written in highly accessible style, providing a vivid image of the development and functioning of the
European Union. Most importantly, the new edition is arguably the most up-to-date textbook of its kind with regard to the speedy developments that have left their mark on the EU over the last two to three years."
--Dr Maximilian Conrad, University of Iceland

"This remarkable up-to-date text has a lot going for it. It is written by a set of experts who have a deep understanding of the European Union. Moreover, they are able to translate that knowledge into a set of straightforward explanations of the European Union's complex history, even more
complex structure, and its current configuration. But what I like best about this text is that it uses this understanding to take on contemporary issues that threaten the European Union's nearly 60 year experiment in the pooling of national sovereignty. The authors explain why the future of the
European Union is in doubt and how ultimately the citizens of Europe will determine its fate."
--Professor Neil Fligstein, University of California, Berkeley
