Politics in the European Union offers a comprehensive and accessible introduction to the theories and history of European integration, the institutional set-up of the European Union and its policies. It combines in an admirable way thematic width with analytical depth. The integration of theoretical reflections in the more empirical chapters facilitates the comprehension and interpretation of the complexities of the European integration process.
This excellent second edition comes very timely and adds to the virtues of the first. It is comprehensive, insightful and the material is presented in a highly accessible manner for students. This makes it a first choice for introductory and advanced classes on EU politics and policies. Andrea Lenschow, University of Osnabruck
