Sage Handbook of European Union Politics by Knud Erik Jorgensen

Book Description

'This handbook is an admirably comprehensive source book for those interested in how the tools of political science inspire EU area studies. The editors enlist leading researchers to synthesize the state of the art in their field of expertise. The Handbook of European Union Politics will be an indispensable intellectual resource for researchers, teachers, and graduate students of the European Union' - Liesbet Hooghe, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, USA 'The Handbook presents an excellent overview of political science research on the EU. It finds the right balance between establishing the state of the art and pointing the reader to theoretical diversity. Highly recommended for advanced students and scholars looking for quick and solid orientation in a fragmented field - and for new ideas for research' - Frank Schimmelfennig, ETH Zurich, Switzerland 'This is a milestone in the study of EU politics.The authors include the most knowledgeable practitioners in the field, and collectively they provide a comprehensive and highly competent overview of the state of theory and research on EU institutions, politics and policies' -Fritz Scharpf, Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies, Germany 'This volume is one to which anyone trying to make sense of the EU of the early 21st century will return again and again. A terrific line-up that combines diverse talents from North America and Europe. Few books of this kind could live up to the billing 'definitive benchmark', but this one certainly does' - John Peterson, University of Edinburgh The European Union (EU) poses quite profound questions for scholars and students of the social and political sciences. This benchmark handbook is designed to: - provide an authoritative state-of-the art guide to the scope of the field suitable for both established scholars and students of the EU - reflect and contribute to the debates about the nature of the field of EU studies and EU politics in particular - explore in detail the development of the many approaches to the study of EU politics.Divided into four sections, the Handbook focuses on theorizing European integration; the EU as polity; politics and policy making in the EU; and the EU and the international system. Its appeal will reside not only in its comprehensive and authoritative coverage of the field, but also in the quality of its contributors, and the diversity of theoretical and methodological approaches included. The resulting volume is a 'must have' for all scholars and advanced students of the EU and European integration.

Author Biography - Knud Erik Jorgensen

Mark A. Pollack is Professor and Jean Monnet Chair in the Department of Political Science at Temple University, where he teaches classes in international relations, international law, and European Union Politics. He received his Ph.D. from Harvard University in 1995, and has previously taught at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and at the European University Institute in Florence, Italy. His research agenda focuses on the promise and limits of international cooperation, with special attention to the European Union, the delegation of powers to supranational organizations, the politics of international law, and transatlantic relations between the United States and the European Union. Prof. Pollack is the author of two books: The Engines of European Integration: Delegation, Agency and Agenda Setting in the European Union (New York: Oxford University Press, 2003), and, with Gregory C. Shaffer, When Cooperation Fails: The International Law and Politics of Genetically Modified Foods (New York: Oxford University Press, 2009). He is also the editor or co-editor of six books, including most recently The Handbook of European Union Politics (with Knud Erik Jorgensen and Ben Rosamond, New York: Sage Publications 2009), and Policy-Making in the European Union, 6th edition (with Helen and William Wallace, New York: Oxford University Press 2010), as well as several dozen journal articles and book chapters. Prof. Pollack was designated by the European Union as Jean Monnet Chair in 2009, and he serves as co-director of the Penn-Temple European Studies Colloquium. He is currently working, with Prof. Jeffrey Dunoff of Temple Law School, on an edited volume, International Law and International Relations, to be published by Cambridge University Press in 2012.
