The European Union (EU) poses quite profound questions for scholars and students of the social and political sciences. This benchmark Handbook is designed to provide an authoritative state-of-the art guide to the scope of the field suitable for both established scholars and students of the EU; reflect and contribute to the debates about the nature of the field of EU studies and EU politics in particular; and explore in detail the development of the many approaches to the study of EU politics. Divided into four sections, the Handbook focuses on theorizing European integration; the EU as polity; politics and policy making in the EU; and the EU and the international system.

About the Author:

Mark A. Pollack is Professor and Jean Monnet Chair in the Department of Political Science at Temple University, where he teaches classes in international relations, international law, and European Union Politics. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1995, and has previously taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. His research agenda focuses on the promise and limits of international cooperation, with special attention to the European Union, the delegation of powers to supranational organizations, the politics of international law, and transatlantic relations between the United States and the European Union. Prof. Pollack is the author of two books: The Engines of European Integration: Delegation, Agency and Agenda Setting in the European Union (New York: Oxford University Press, 2003), and, with Gregory C. Shaffer, When Cooperation Fails: The International Law and Politics of Genetically Modified Foods (New York: Oxford University Press, 2009). He is also the editor or co-editor of six books, including most recently The Handbook of European Union Politics (with Knud Erik Jorgensen and Ben Rosamond, New York: Sage Publications 2009), and Policy-Making in the European Union, 6th edition (with Helen and William Wallace, New York: Oxford University Press 2010), as well as several dozen journal articles and book chapters. Prof. Pollack was designated by the European Union as Jean Monnet Chair in 2009, and he serves as co-director of the Penn-Temple European Studies Colloquium. He is currently working, with Prof. Jeffrey Dunoff of Temple Law School, on an edited volume, International Law and International Relations, to be published by Cambridge University Press in 2012.

Review:

This volume is a most valuable contribution to the ever expanding list of textbooks on the politics of the European Union. The handbook is an enormously impressive and highly authoritative work in all aspects. It clearly distinguishes itself from competing books by the range of coverage and the clarity of analysis of the state of theory and research on EU institutions, politics and policies.The extensive and inclusive structure of the handbook is organized into four broad chapters: theorizing European integration; the EU as a polity; politics and policy-making in the EU; and the EU and the international system. It includes 28 essays, carefully chosen and meticulously researched by some of the foremost experts in the field. The book opens with a full section on theory, providing broader social scientific context of EU studies, supplemented by chapters on disciplinary history and the academic discourses on EU politics of other disciplines. The second part offers insights into the variety of approaches to the EU as a polity, ranging from traditional categories of empirical political analysis to some fundamental questions of normative political theory. The next section deals with the varied interpretations of the overall character of EU politics, providing a comprehensive picture of how the segmented policy processes in the EU have developed over time, and analyses the complex interaction between the supranational and domestic levels in contemporary European politics. The remaining chapter looks at the questions of the EU's interaction with world politics, dealing more specifically with issues such as development policy, trade policy and comparative regionalism in the context of globalization.Overall, the "Handbook of European Union Politics "is a most useful book that can be highly recommended. A strong analytical framework coupled with unparalleled coverage of the major issues of the political science research of the EU makes this volume a formidable tool for teaching and a significant input to new scholarly research. It is both relatively sophisticated and very accessible to graduate students and advanced researchers. The clear writing style and the richness of information presented will certainly make this book interesting for non-academic readers.
