The European Union is a unique, complex, and ever-changing political entity which continues to shape both international politics and the politics of its individual member states. Politics in the European Union provides a clear analysis of the theory, history, policies, and institutions of theEU, giving students a well-rounded introduction to the subject. With an updated history section, this text weaves together material on key contemporary concerns, including the Eurozone crisis and the implementation of the Lisbon Treaty, with a thorough consideration of the workings and remit of theEuropean Union.
