European Union Politics, Fifth Edition, is the most complete, current, and authoritative overview of EU politics available. 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.
Alongside comprehensive coverage of the history, theory, institutions, and policies of the EU, European Union Politics, Fifth Edition, features a section on contemporary issues and current debates, including democracy and legitimacy in the EU, public opinion, the economic crisis, and a brand-new chapter on the future of the EU.
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–multiple-choice questions, a digital flashcard glossary, an exam study guide, an interactive map of Europe, biographies of important figures in EU history, and links to OUP journal articles–and instructors–PowerPoint-based lecture slides; seminar and quiz questions; and examples of simulation exercises.
