Description

The State of European Integration provides scholars, practitioners, experts and students with a comprehensive account of the state of the European Union today. With contributions from leading scholars including Richard G. Whitman, Meltem Müftüler-Baç, Gülnur Aybet, Leila Simona Talani and Gareth Dale, the book examines the EU in a theoretically informed and empirically grounded manner. Opening with an exploration into the nature of the European Union as an international actor, it then assesses the impact of enlargement on institutions, policies and identity. The contributors investigate issues related to the degree of convergence and cohesion among members, and analyze the economic and monetary state of integration. The volume comes at a timely interval when there is a need to understand the present and future of the European Union.

Reviews

It offers detailed accounts of policy and conflicting visions and should be read by all those concerned with what is at stake in the EU's pursuit of an "ever closer union".' Costas M. Constantinou, Keele University, UK ' … stands out for its substantive breadth, empirical thoroughness and an impressive mix of conceptual and case-study contributions by a group of rising stars. ' Kalypso Nicolaïdis, St Antony's College, University of Oxford, UK
