structure, history, and policies of the European Union. Anyone who needs a quick and
accessible introduction to the EU -- including scholars and professionals in
government, business, media, or the nonprofit sector -- will find this volume a
valuable tool. Ideal for advanced high school and college text use, it is also
useful background reading for those planning overseas study, work, or research.
Drawing on many years of teaching and consulting, Andreas Staab offers basic terms
and interpretive frameworks for understanding the evolution of the EU; the overall
structure, purpose, and mandate of its main constituent divisions; and key policy
areas, such as market unification.
