Product Description


'A worthy addition to the still relatively few books covering the history of the European integration project. Useful as a set text for any chronologically structured course. It is also certain to become recommended background reading for anyone who wants a quick and not-too-dry introduction to the subject.' - Michelle Cini, Times Higher Education Supplement

5.0 out of 5 stars Europe Recast: A History of European Union 29 Jan 2009
By Sumsi
A very well written and informative book. Interesting to political enthusiast, experts and complete new comers to European politics alike. It was one of the set books for my university module, but nevertheless I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone interested in finding out about the history of the EU

5.0 out of 5 stars A straightfoward, scholarly history 12 Nov 2004
By Midwest Book Review - Published on Amazon.com
Europe Recast: A History Of European Union is the true saga of people's attempts to bring together the will of Europe as a whole, from the first struggling attempts at economic integration to the formation of the European Union. The writing style is scholarly without being overly pedantic, and detailed without losing its central themes in a morass of trivia. A straightfoward, scholarly history, examining events, motives, philosophies, and results, Europe Recast is highly recommended for students, scholars, researchers, and government policy makers.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good book for beginners 21 Jan 2007
By Fernando Gonzales - Published on Amazon.com
The book cites its best knowledge on the whole functionality of the EU and attempted to simplify the complex political mechanism that afloats in the european realm. My professor did beg to differ and acknowledge the book not as canonical but a considerable piece... Since I'm not a Politics major I must admit this book does document in a simplified form before newbies (like yours truly) falls into the abyss of confusion.

1.0 out of 5 stars Horrible waste of money 25 Dec 2010
By N. Brock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this, as a teacher, to enlighten myself. The book is boring, complex, redundant and a waste of money. Others on the topic are much better. There is no attempt to engage the reader at all and the information is presented in a choppy way with no order.
