This book is designed to illustrate the 'core' principles of European Union (EU) law. As it seeks to set out, in clear and understandable fashion, the law of the EU as found in C Treaty and Treaty on European Union as well as the judgments of the European Courts, legislative enactments of the Council of the Union, administrative decisions of the European Commission and official publications of national and Union institutions. What makes it unique and distinct from other textbooks in the subject is that it examines the EU within the context of globalization processes which have rendered the strictly 'internal' approach to the EU outdated. The book is written for students with no previous knowledge of EU law, but is not introductory in character. Its coverage is comprehensive and contains detailed references to the primary sources. This feature will also enable deeper study of the subject by students who possess some knowledge and who wish to expand it.
