Thoroughly revised and updated, this is one of the best and most widely-used introductions to the politics and policies of the European Union.This book is one of the most widely used introductions to the politics and polices of the European Union, and one of the few written specifically for American students. In this new edition, John McCormick brings the book right up to date.Covering the history, governing institutions and policies of the EU, McCormick argues that the EU is one of the world's economic and political superpowers, that it has brought far-reaching changes to the lives of Europeans and that it has helped the twenty-seven member states to take a newly assertive role on the global stage. Unlike most other books on the EU, this text pays particular attention to the implications of the EU for the United States.Thoroughly revised and updated, with many new tables, figures and boxes and with several chapters completely rewritten, the fourth edition take into account developments in the debate about the character and significance of the EU, changes to the structure of EU institutions, the implications of the 2004 and 2007 enlargements and key policy developments.
