Mirjam Van Bergen
Clear and concise-easily accessible-exactly what we need.

Aimed at students and the general reader, this text presents an introduction to how the European Union works. McCormick (political science, Indiana U.) takes a broad view of European integration while addressing such topics as the motives behind international cooperation, the relationship between the EU and its member states, and the Common Agricultural Policy. The second edition also examines recent developments such as the Treaty of Nice, the adoption of the euro, and the upcoming enlargement to central and eastern Europe. Annotation c.
