"Europe's Experimental Union" challenges conventional writings on European intergration by situating the analysis of the EU in the context of changing patterns of political and econimic order. The authors conclude that the union is not evolving towards a federal superstate, but rather, is an arena of deep economic intergration governed by a prismatic polity characterised by innovation, experimentation, pragmatis, decentralisation and devolution. Although it may seem unsettled, this book reveals that in fact the experimental nature of the the EU enables it to respond to multiple agendas and Europe's diversity in a flexible manner.
." an immensely instructive and thought-provoking bool: strongly recommended reading for advanced students and specialists concerned with European politics, European integration, international relations, patterns of governance and the changing political economy of late twentieth century state and capitalism.' Robert J Bideleux, "University of Wales," Swansea
