The Government and Politics of the European Union
In this fourth edition of the leading text in its field, Neill Nugent provides comprehensive coverage and analysis of the developments occuring in the European Union. Thoroughly revised and updated, this book examines such key and current issues as expansion of the organization, the Treaty of Amsterdam, and the Economic and Monetary Union. As in earlier editions, this volume presents an introduction to the origins of the Union and provides detailed analysis of the powers involved, the influence and functioning of the EU's principle institutions and political actors, as well as perspectives on major policy interests and processes. A new chapter on theorizing and conceptualizing European integration has also been added.
