Making History

European Integration and Institutional Change at Fifty

Edited by Sophie Meunier
Kathleen R. McNamara

This volume argues that the EU today may be at a crossroads--not because of the failed EU Constitution referenda but rather because of the unresolved tensions in European governance not banished with the referenda's defeat. Meunier and McNamara's collection is the first to comprehensively examine these challenging issues using the tools of historical institutionalism to analyze the past and future political and institutional trajectory of the European Union across a wide variety of policy areas. Together, the volume's authors provide a remarkably coherent theoretical approach to the key questions facing Europe, drawing a portrait of the EU today that reveals a robust, but not invulnerable, set of institutions and practices.
