Bang up to date, and taking full account of the Lisbon Treaty changes, it is equally suited to those studying EU politics and government for the first time and those who wish to delve deeper into its intricacies." - Amy Verdun, University of Victoria, Canada
"Accessible but thought-provoking, and based on an impressively deep knowledge of the European Union, this beautifully-written, comprehensive and thoughtful new introduction, seemingly effortlessly, makes a complex subject really come alive. My students will love it." - Jane O'Mahony, University of Kent, UK
"Lively and vivid, this wonderfully accessible introduction to the principles, history, politics, policies, and effects of European integration will really help students penetrate the walls of incomprehension and complexity that too often surround fortress Europe." – Jonathon W. Moses, NTNU, Trondheim, Norway
"An excellent up-to-date textbook combining clear writing with a deep knowledge of the European Union. I recommend it highly both for newcomers to EU Studies and for those who want to gain an in-depth understanding of the complexities, some would say 'mysteries', of European integration." Alberta M. Sbragia, University of Pittsburgh, USA
"Comprehensive, authoritative and, above all, accessible with a lively writing style lightened by pertinent anecdotes and observations: a rare combination.

Unreasonably most Politicians, Administrators and their advisors are concerned with the "Daily business" and they avoid to think carefully and act efficiently and preventively on the Huge problems that European Union and Humanity confront before...it is too late!. ..
Good ideas and information from citizens are misplaced and in extremely rare case(s) a good response is given in utilizing the originator of Idea(s) in order to develop further the idea(s) and to be motivated and supported for more useful contributions to European Union and to Humanity, therefore excellent unknown scientists and persons are
de-motivated to offer their original knowledge and ideas. Think everything not random depends on the "Human factor(Human decisions)" and the laws of nature and God. Therefore the biggest factor in the Prosperity of European Union and the Nations is its Most Qualified + Moral Citizens...
A) Now, Let try to Think further in the Top problem of Oncology...
I think further serious scientific Thinking and efforts must be allocated to the THEORY! OF ONCOLOGY (Remember the Theory provides the compass for the correct direction(s) of applied research, and I think it is mainly because of lack of a good Theory of oncology that the problems of oncology have not solved Efficiently)
This reviewer since 1983 has thought of "An UNIFIED Theory of Oncology" based mainly in molecular informatics(perhaps the first article also in molecular informatics),etc, and he presented a summary of his theory under the title "A note of the essay on cell abnormal multiplication rate" in the 7th European Interuniversity Symposium, help 17-20 July 1997 in Thessaloniki,Greece. This reviewer perhaps may be considered that he discovered the field of "MOLECULAR INFORMATICS" with his scientific article on an UNIFIED Theory of Oncology , since 1983, but since then Huge problems was created against this reviewer making very difficult to promote his fundamentally original scientific ideas and thinking... Let define in my understanding the field of "Molecular Informatics" as "Molecular Informatics" we may understand information network(s) which is created by molecule(s) carrying information. This is my original definition of the field of "Molecular Informatics".
B) Then, Let think on the Top problem of International Nuclear Safety ,with PREVENTIVE thinking and actions in mind , we inform you that it is possible a nuclear fission reactor to explode as nuclear bomb, even with very small possibility but with HUGE consequences for the Humanity and ecosystems, therefore the Risk is Great!. Because then from a typical 1000 MWe nuclear fission reactor plant if it explode as nuclear bomb then about two Tones (2 000 000 000 000 micrograms ) of Plutonium will go to atmospheric circulation in inhaled sizes particles and Think one microgram of Plutonium if it is inhaled can cause Deadly Cancer. If you then think in economics damage(s) then perhaps a consideration may be in decades of Trillions of Euro. The main cause in almost all nuclear accidents is the "Human Factor" and therefore this author is thinking for a scientific research to control the Nuclear Human Factor .For more understanding study the scientific article of Joseph-Christos Kondylakis which was presented in the 19th scientific symposium of the Hellenic Nuclear Physics Society at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki , Greece in 2010 and its published proceedings also exist in the Internet site: http://nuclpart.phys.uoa.gr/HNPS/Files/ANP2010.pdf
From: (the reviewer) Joseph-Christos Kondylakis , on Monday-19-August-2013
