About this book

European Union Politics provides an authoritative introduction to all aspects of politics and policy in the EU. Accessible and lively, it is designed to give readers a sense of the colour and flavour of EU politics and how it has changed the meaning of Europe and the lives of Europeans. This second edition has been updated throughout - taking account of the 2014 European Parliament elections and changes to key roles in the EU - and has additional coverage of theoretical approaches used to study the EU that will encourage students towards a more sophisticated understanding of how and why the EU has become what it is today, of its strengths and weaknesses and of the ongoing crisis in the Euro zone.
