Editorial Reviews

Review of 1st Edition:"[A] comprehensive and valuable examination of the responsibilities, work and organization of the European Commission.

In this book I immediately recognize the Commission in which I served at the highest level for ten years." - Lord Williamson, Former Secretary General of the Commission, Journal of Common Market Studies
