Editorial Reviews

Reviews of the first edition:"[T]his welcome addition to the still relatively small amount of literature on the Parliament will undoubtedly become a core textbook for those studying the EU. There's plenty of food for thought, too, in these pages, to tempt the policy practitioner crowd."--European Voice"[A] comprehensive text...essential reading...Those with undergraduate or postgraduate reading lists in mind will find much in the authors' succinct summaries of sophisticated literature and in their ability to set out simply, among other things, the notoriously complex co-decision procedure"--Richard Whitaker, Journal of Common Market Studies "[E]ssential reading...This book is easily the most comprehensive treatment in English of the EP to date and...is likely to remain the central work on the subject for some time."--Paolo Dardanelli, Times Higher Education Supplement
