Editorial Reviews

“An ambitious thematically-organized text that draws examples from across uniting Europe, Kubicek skillfully illuminates complex political issues in a way that undergraduates will find engaging. In addition to providing a useful frame within which European politics can be viewed, it covers the full repertoire of institutions and actions on which Europeans draw to address these issues.”–John Scherpereel, James Madison University
