Editorial Reviews

"This remarkable up-to-date text has a lot going for it. It is written by a set of experts who have a deep understanding of the European Union. Moreover, they are able to translate that knowledge into a set of straightforward explanations of the European Union's complex history, even morecomplex structure, and its current configuration. But what I like best about this text is that it uses this understanding to take on contemporary issues that threaten the European Union's nearly 60 year experiment in the pooling of national sovereignty. The authors explain why the future of theEuropean Union is in doubt and how ultimately the citizens of Europe will determine its fate." --Professor Neil Fligstein, University of California, Berkeley
