Overview

Assuming only an introductory knowledge of economics and with its comprehensive coverage of EU economic policies, European Economic Integration is ideally suited for all students taking courses on the economics of the EU as part of an Economics, Business Studies or inter-disciplinary European Studies degree.

With its clear and accessible style and its combination of theory and applications, European Economic Integration provides up-to-date coverage of the most important issues facing European economies as the European Union in the 21st Century. Much has changed in the European Union since publication of the third edition: the euro has successfully been launched and the accession of ten new member states agreed; a Constitutional Convention is in progress which will lay the political and institutional foundations for the Community for decades to come. The Fourth Edition has been substantially revised and updated in order to provide up-to-date coverage of the most important issues facing European economies in the 21st Century.
