Product Description


"One needn't have a thorough grounding in EU issues to appreciate this title, which is directed to the U.S. market and covers details Americans may not know. Two professors cover all of the basics of EU processes and problems, and provide a strong study that will enhance any understanding of the history and current state of affairs of the EU." -The Midwest Book Review Praise for previous editions: "The previous editions of John McCormick's text on the European Union established it as a preeminent introductory book in the field. Its clear and concise style has made the text especially valuable for the American student who frequently lacks a background on the topic. The third edition continues this tradition by providing penetrating updates on the EU's enlargement and the recent transatlantic friction over Iraq." -Brian Murphy, co-director, European Union Center, University System of Georgia, and professor at North Georgia College & State University "This is the best introductory text on the policies and politics of the EU that I have come across, being user-friendly, comprehensive, and representing very good value for money...It deserves to be widely adopted as essential course reading." -Political Studies "Provides a richly detailed and clearly written guide to this complex political system that is both comprehensive and filled with analytical insight. It will be as useful and interesting to scholars of the EU as it is accessible to students." -David R. Cameron, Yale University

This was not quite what I was hoping for in terms of how the book was organized, but it provided a different way of viewing the development of the EU and its institutions.

No page numbers? 4 May 2014

I thought this book was very interesting and well-written. However, this is a book that many professors use to teach students about the European Union, and the author in his introduction even states that this is the reason he wrote the book. In light of this, I am majorly disappointed in the lack of page numbers for this e-book. If you are a student needing this for class and would like to use it to write a paper, don't bother with the Kindle version because it has no page numbers, making it hard to use for citations.
