0 Reviews
Colin Pilkington begins by explaining how the European Union has grown, and then covers the impact of the EU on Britain, both in terms of its influence on government policy-making and on European legislation. He then explores the participation of the British people in the democratic processes of the EU, through representation in the European Parliament and through the developing idea of European citizenship. Pilkington concentrates on the impact of Britain's EU membership following ratification of the Maastricht Treaty, and explores the effect of membership on the individual political parties and pressure groups.
