Book Description

29 Nov 2004 0273679082 978-0273679080 4

With its clear and accessible style and its combination of theory and applications, European Economic Integration will enable students to understand the European Community and place it in economic and historic context. The book focuses principally on the economic dimension of the EU, but places this firmly within the context of the surrounding political debates.

Much has changed in the European Union since the publication of the third edition with the successful launch of the Euro and the accession of ten new member states.  The 4th edition has been comprehensively revised to reflect these changes, providing up-to-date-coverage of the most important issues facing European economies in the 21st Century.

Assuming only an introductory knowledge of economics and with its comprehensive coverage of EU economic policies, European Economic Integration is ideally suited to all students taking courses on the economics of the EU as part of an economics, business studies or inter-disciplinary European studies degree.

Much has changed in the European Union since publication of the third edition: the euro has successfully been launched and the accession of ten new member states agreed; a Constitutional Convention is in progress which will lay the political and institutional foundations for the Community for decades to come. The Fourth Edition has been substantially revised and updated in order to provide up-to-date coverage of the most important issues facing European economies in the 21st Century.

Amazon.com: 4.0 out of 5 stars  1 review
4.0 out of 5 stars excellent textbook, albeit outdated 21 Sep 2010
By bettasbetta - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I am teaching economics of European Integration to a group of 20 undergrads at the junior/senior level. When choosing the textbook, I had two criteria in mind:
1) cater to readers who don't know anything about the European Union and European integration;
2) explain to the American student why the EU often takes a very different approach from the US' to a specific policy issue.

This book was the perfect solution. Neatly organized, easy to read, it provides the right amount of historical/policy background before diving right into the economics of an issue. The graphs are simple enough for an undergrad to interpret, and the information is contained right in the box for quick reference. Finally, there's plenty of references to empirical work and policy documents, as well as suggestions for further reading.

The only issue with this book is that the fourth edition was already outdated upon publication in 2005, due to the fast pace of EU evolution. It talks about the major 2004 enlargement as a future challenge, and many policy issues are still discussed from an EU15 perspective. There's obviously no reference to the Costitution or to the Lisbon Strategy, barely touches on climate change.

Therefore, unless this textbook gets a major revision, be prepared to integrate it heavily with other sources.
