Editorial Reviews

Reviews of previous editions:"Neill Nugent has once again supplied us with a definitive textbook on the institutions and politics of the European Union. However it is much more than this. It is an essential reference book for both the academic and practitioner... [and] a masterful effort at explaining the inexplicable and at making the opaque transparent." —Political Studies"The book is well organized, well researched, and clearly written. It answers almost every factual question that the undergraduate is likely to ask about the existing organizational structure of the Community, and the judgements that the author offers from time to time are invariably sound and sensible." —Government and Opposition"Nugent manages throughout to convey the complexity of the EC system without confusing the reader. In short, it is an excellent book with which it is difficult to find fault." —West European Politics"...this is by far the best teaching text on the European Community that I have come across." —Journal of Common Market Studies "Thanks to its comprehensive structure, accurate and systematic approach to untangling the complexities of integration processes and structures, and insightful evaluvation of policy outcomes. It remains an invaluable reference for students, scholars and practitioners alike." —Boyka Stefanova, Perspectives on Political Science Journal
