This book is the culmination of four years' research by the authors on European Union governance and agri-environment policy making. It is a timely contribution to the debate on Europe; it exposes the myriad processes underlying the European integration project, and demonstrates theimplications for European rural economies of the emerging system of supranational governance. A range of contemporary theoretical approaches from political science writing is employed to respond to the complexities of the EU decision-making process, in the context of agri-environmental policy. Thebook fills an important gap in political-geographical studies of the EU.

Editorial Reviews

`Excellent...the author's insights into the...EU are fascinating. Their comparative reseach is admirable. The book is a valuable perspective on how the CAP functions and much more. A valuable addition to the EU library.'Professor David O'Keefe, College of Europe, Bruges, and Professor of European Law, University College London.
