First published in 1998, this volume drew upon a variety of primary and secondary sources from a number of academic disciplines. European Union Law provides not merely the materials which form the law, but also analysis of the pressures, ideologies and agents which have shaped it. It is suitable for newer types of European Union law courses which trace the development of the European Union from economic to political community as well as for the more traditional courses which focus predominantly upon the law of the Institutions and of the internal market. Suitable for both undergraduates and postgraduates.


’…an excellent and stimulating presentation of community law, with a well-structured and thought-provoking selection of cases and materials, as well as very perceptive and critical observations…ideal for students and those who use it should certainly acquire an excellent understanding of community law.’ Professor Laurence Gormley, Groningen University, The Netherlands ’…carefully written and researched and should be very useful student texts…enormously detailed…a wealth of information and critical commentary…the footnote references are superbly detailed and an extraordinarily valuable resource.’ Yearbook of European Law '…conveys a true understanding of its subject, rather than merely a knowledge of the rules that make it up. As such it will be worth reading for many years to come.' International and Comparative Law Quarterly
