In this fourth edition of the leading text in its field, Neill Nugent provides comprehensive coverage and analysis of the developments occuring in the European Union. Thoroughly revised and updated, this book examines such key and current issues as expansion of the organization, the Treaty of Amsterdam, and the Economic and Monetary Union. As in earlier editions, this volume presents an introduction to the origins of the Union and provides detailed analysis of the powers involved, the influence and functioning of the EU’s principle institutions and political actors, as well as perspectives on major policy interests and processes. A new chapter on theorizing and conceptualizing European integration has also been added.
From reviews of previous editions:

“[T]his is by far the best teaching text on the European Community. . . .”—Journal of Common Market Studies

"Nugent manages throughout to convey the complexity of the EC system without confusing the reader. In short, it is an excellent book with which it is difficult to find fault."—West European Politics
"Well organized, well researched, and clearly written. [This book] answers almost every factual question that the undergraduate is likely to ask about the existing organizational structure of the Community, and the judgements that the author offers from time to time are invariably sound and sensible."—Government and OppositionFrom the Back Cover:
