Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

'...absorbing and clear.' - European Access

Booknews
Great Britain has often been viewed as the odd man out in Europe, and the unpredictable 1999 British elections to the European Parliament did little to alter that perception. The authors analyze that low turnout election's implications for the home front and for the European Union, in an historical and national campaign context. Nine other contributors assess candidates' views and activities. Includes editorial cartoons, supporting tables and boxes, and an appended analysis of this "second-order election" which found voters more interested in national than EU issues. Butler, an emeritus fellow at Nuffield College at Oxford, and Westlake, head of the European Commission's Unit for Institutional Relations in Brussels, have written extensively on British and European politics.
