The book is well presented and McCormick has put great efforts to articulate the socioeconomic and geopolitical forces driving the European Union forward. For those studying the EU, this book offers a great deal of theories, insights, concepts, and study cases.

Arrived as requested - present for my sister- and was what she asked for. Not the most uptodate information, I gather, so maybe the author could revise this volume?
