Reviews

"This is an impressive book and required reading. Although Brexit remains a 'moving target' the contributions contain insights that retain their value and significance." - Prof Colin Harvey, Journal of Cross Border Studies in Ireland

"Fabbrini's edited collection is an impressive feat of organization ... That the publication draws pretty much equally on the talents of male and female academics based across six EU Member States speaks not only to the depth of Fabbrinis contacts, but the care that he has taken to construct this collection ... The resultant collection will provide academics, now and long into the future, with an academic first draft of Brexit and its consequences." - Colin Murray, Common Market Law Review

"The book that you have in your hands is the first comprehensive study that makes it easier for the reader to comprehend the complexity of the law and politics of Brexit. It is an indispensable compendium of knowledge on all key substantial issues that will impinge on the new post-Brexit settlement in Britain and in the European Union." - Danuta Hübner, Chair of the European Parliament Constitutional Affairs Committee
