Critics like to depict the European Union as undemocratic and unpopular, but their arguments are too often based on myths and misunderstandings. This does us all a disservice, and in this period of uncertainty about the future of Europe it is more important than ever that we have a firm grasp of the issues at stake.

This powerful new book debunks the misconceptions surrounding the EU and makes a compelling and comprehensive case for the benefits of European integration. It shows how the EU has improved the lives of Europeans in countless ways, and how it has given Europe a powerful presence on the international stage. Guaranteed to illuminate as well as spark debate, this book will appeal to anyone who seeks to better understand what Europe means and why it matters.

About the Author:

JOHN MCCORMICK is Jean Monnet Professor of European Union Politics, Indiana University Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI), USA. He originally trained in journalism and worked for eight years in the information departments of two London-based environmental interest groups before becoming an academic since when he has published a wide range of books on the EU and other subjects including Understanding European Integration (now in its 5th edition), The European Union, The European Superpower and Contemporary Britain.

Review:

'Sceptical voices have been a constant accompaniment to the construction of a Europe 'united in diversity' and, as John McCormick reminds us, there have been many memorable predictions over the years of its impending crisis or death. With his wide knowledge of history and expertise as a seasoned political analyst, he is well aware of both the strengths and weaknesses of this process and of the inevitability of periods of stagnation and crisis as well as periods of dynamism. But in a stark challenge to sceptics and critics he shows that the story of European Union has been, above all, one of progress in mutual understanding between peoples, of the benefits of cooperation and of the pooling of sovereignty between nations, and of a growing solidarity and cohesion in practice that could provide a model too for those looking for a more peaceful and cooperative form of organization on a global scale.' - Jacques Delors
