While much has been written on the Common Agricultural Policy from the perspectives of political science and agricultural economics, it is as true now as it was in 1988 when the first edition appeared to say that little has been written in English on the specifically legal issues which arisefrom the CAP. Despite this apparent neglect, the CAP lay behind many of the institutional developments in the EC, as well as its system of finance, and it is also an area where the introduction of the euro has had a particularly marked effect. Agricultural goods formed the first single market in theEC, and agricultural legislation forms the background to much of the European Court's case-law on the relationship between EC law and national law, and it is also within this context that the Court has developed (and is developing) many of the general principles of EC law. Furthermore, the CAP is anarea which has more recently been influenced by broader international agreements, notably the WTO Agreement on Agriculture, but it is also an area in which EC policy has in fact been found to conflict with WTO law, notably with regard to the market in bananas, and with regard to the prohibition onhormones in beef.The aim of this book is to explore the legal issues arising from the CAP at a time when it has undergone a major change of emphasis from product support to producer support, and to set out the principles underlying what remains a complex web of legislation.

Editorial Reviews

`Presents a clear and well written analysis of the scope of the common organisations and the financial structures which form the backbone of the policy itself ... There is an interesting and erudite discussion of the powers of the national authorities, the difficulties created by the existenceof the common organisations, as well as the scope of the exclusive nature of the CAP.'European Law Review
