4.0 out of 5 stars A good book to stretch A level students 2 Sep 2002
This book has excellent and detailed chapters about the EU but I would not recommend it as a basic A Level textbook as it is too detailed and complex. Nevertheless, students heading for the top grades will find it a useful extension of their knowledge.

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent in depth coverage 28 Mar 2002
By "daniel_sp" - Published on
This book provides excellent coverage of recent developments in EU politics. The introduction is particularly worth reading as it gives a concise overview of the various schools of European studies - essential information for all those who do European studies and want to avoid falling into the trap of taking one author as knowing "the truth" about how the EU works.
In part 2 the political system of the EU is discussed in depth with references to recent changes and developments. Part 3 covers the main policy objectives of the Union (such as creating a European market or cohesion funds) while part 4 singles out important key issues (such as enlargement or European Monetary Union).
All in all this volume provides excellent and in-depth coverage of recent issues in the EU.
