This engaging book, a true twenty-first century enterprise, is the only text that offers both country case studies and discussion of the European Union in one sustained volume. The contributors, an authoritative group of Americans and Europeans, explore the new Europe—west and east—using intertwining themes of domestic politics, European integration, and European security. The chapters—divided into country, institutional, and thematic sections—are both student and teacher friendly: clearly written, engaging, and tailored for classroom discussion. Each chapter provides necessary basic information and explanations, enhanced by an accessible and distinctive perspective on concepts and current debates. Now thoroughly revised for 2004, Europe Today is the first European politics text to offer current analysis on the invasion of Iraq, NATO and European security, U.S.-European relations, and enlargement issues. All chapters from the first edition have been comprehensively updated, and completely new chapters have been added on Germany, France, Great Britain, Spain, Poland, monetary union, security, and migration. With its strong international emphasis and focus on Europe before and after Iraq, professors will be able to use this text to lead students toward a coherent view of intra-European conflicts, Europe and the United States, and Europe's international responsibilities. A new website devoted exclusively to the book, with regularly updated statistics, analysis, and links for each chapter, will provide a rich resource for students seeking additional information and researching classroom assignments.
