Providing a full account of the process of European integration and of the nature of the European Union (EU), this book offers a highly useful, broad introduction, with full sections on theory, history, member states, institutions, and policies. It distinguishes itself from similar texts with its analysis of the main academic debates on the EU, including intergovernmentalism vs. supranationlism, issues of legitimacy, and the impact of globalization. Each chapter includes boxed features, diagrams, figures, and summary points to highlight key points and provide practical examples.
