Systematically revised and updated throughout, this ground-breaking text provides an overview of all the major approaches to European integration. Each author reflects on the development, achievements and problems of their approach, and discusses historical and current issues of Europeanintegration. The concluding chapter then comparatively assesses the strengths and weaknesses of each approach and looks at the emerging issues. This edition includes two new chapters on the political theory of European integration and critical theory.
Antje Wiener is a Professor of Politics and International Relations in the Department of European Studies and Modern Languages at Bath University. Thomas Diez is a Senior Lecturer in the Department of Political Science and International Studies at the University of Birmingham.

Editorial Reviews

`No single volume provides as comprehensive an overview of theories of the politics and international relations of the European Union...The volume provides an up-to-date review of the field, and provokes the reader by suggesting weaknesses as well as strengths of the chief approaches.'Gary Marks, University of North Carolina
