Written by one of Europe’s leading analysts of the European Union, the third edition of this text has been significantly reorganized in structure, and fully revised and updated to reflect the changes in the EU over recent years.
The third edition offers a fundamental discussion, and detailed analysis, of European integration. Uniquely it combines economic analysis with a detailed knowledge of the integration methods employed in the EU.
