The Member States of the European Union combines an analysis of individual EU member states with the effects of Europeanization on domestic institutions and policies. Examining both sides of this crucial relationship, it is the best guide to EU member state relations available. The second edition has been thoroughly updated to take in the latest round of EU enlargement and includes chapters on eight member states from different geographical regions and dates of accession. These are followed by seven thematic chapters on the Europeanization of structures, actors, andprocesses within the EU 27. Each chapter is written by an international expert in an accessible and engaging way. It is the ideal text for all those with an interest in the member states of the European Union and how they work together.
Simon Bulmer is Professor of Politics at University of Sheffield. Christian Lequesne is Director of Centre d'Etudes et de Recherches Internationales (CERI) at Sciences Po.
