How Does It Work?

Fourth Edition

Edited by Daniel Kenealy, John Peterson, and Richard Corbett

New European Union Series

  • Incorporates innovative pedagogical features including "How it really works" boxes, which challenge students to contrast theories with how the EU actually works in practice, and "Compared to what?" features, which encourage students to think broadly and critically about the reality of politics in the EU
  • A Companion Website offers multiple-choice questions and a digital flashcard glossary for students and seminar questions, activities, and PowerPoint-based lecture slides for instructors

New to this Edition:

  • Presents the latest thinking on the ongoing debate about the UK's future in the EU
  • Expands coverage of theories of European integration and policy making
  • Emphasizes the global context in which the EU exists, including the EU's response to events like the Arab Spring, the rise of emerging powers, and the US "Asian pivot"
  • Extends coverage of the post-2009 Eurozone crisis, what the crisis says about the nature of EU governance, and what it means for the EU's global status and image
  • Insights from several new contributors ensure that the book continues to reflect findings from the most recent research
