Bringing together specially commissioned chapters by leading authorities and rigorously edited for coherence and accessibility, this all new replacement for Developments in the European Union provides state of the art coverage of the EU as it expands and reconstitutes itself in the early twenty first century. Ranging broadly across the economics, social, legal and political dimensions of the EU, it assesses both internal changes and external relations and examines in detail key policy areas.

Industry Reviews

'[A]n excellent introduction to current trajectories in the EU. As with all books in the Palgrave Developments...series, the quality of editing is superb. The individual articles are comprehensive, though not to the extent that they impede liveliness or the development of an argument...It vies with Neill Nugent's Government and Politics of the European Union for the title of must buy book on the EU.' - Chris Hanretty, Journal of European Affairs
