I have to buy this book for my carrer. And I don't regret to do it. Dinan offers a great perspective about the EU, is very easy to read and understand, when I was reading it I was feeling that I was reading a novel, and in some point it is. The istory of the EU, even when we just focus on the institutions should be read it as a novel.
As a MA student I highly recommend this book to all the persons that want to learn about the EU.

Good start for beginners, a little dry. 9 Feb. 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I knew virtually nothing about the Europena Union before reading this book, so I don't know how valuable it would be for an experienced EU scholar. However, for someone like myself it covers all the basics (what istitutions are involved?) and a good history from conception to today. The reading is a little dry, mostly due to the number of details involved, but not difficult to read. It makes a good starting point for those wishing to familiarize themselves with the the general history of European integration before going on to further study.

Written by a sadist

thankfully it written in two parts, skip part one.

Part one only list off major actors and characters in the developing EU, great if you know some back gourd but if you don't there is noting in the text to help draw any conclusions.

Part 2 is far more interesting. If you can make it through Part 1

Do your self a favor read part too, skip through part 1 I suggest first line of each paragraph and then look to the EU web sight for real insight.

a good guidance to understand EU integration 5 July 2006
By Huhe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The book gives a clear clue of the integration of the EU through the past fifty years. It reviews the general background behind every integration, which is much helpful to particularly law students.

In a word, it is a good stuff to read before we learn EU law.
