5.0 out of 5 stars The Best book about EU 6 Jan 2009
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good start for beginners, a little dry. 9 Feb 2001
By Amazon Customer - Published on
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars a good guidance to understand EU integration 5 July 2006
By Huhe - Published on
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.
