An authoritative text that covers EU theories, institutions, policies, and issues

Description

European Union Politics, Fourth Edition, provides a comprehensive and authoritative overview of EU theories, institutions, policies, and issues. Bringing together carefully edited contributions from leading scholars in the field, it assumes no background knowledge and is therefore accessible to students new to the subject. The text is enhanced by excellent learning features including reader's guides, text boxes, key points, figures, questions, further reading, web links, and a glossary.

An extensive Companion Website (coming soon) will offer resources for students--interactive maps of Europe; an interactive timeline of key events in the history of the EU; multiple-choice questions; biographies of important figures in EU history; an exam study guide; a flashcard glossary; and links to OUP journal articles--and instructors--PowerPoint-based lecture slides; essay, seminar, and quiz questions; and boxes and figures from the text.
