Very Short Introductions #36: The European Union: A Very Short Introduction Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Over the past few decades, the European Union has seen many great changes. Negotiations for the accession of six new states have begun, and membership, which already covers almost all of Western Europe, will soon extend to most of Central and Eastern Europe. The Union's institutions have been reformed, and its powers may soon reach beyond the economy and the environment into the fields of foreign policy and defense. This thorough yet succinct introduction has been completely updated to take the many recent developments into account. John Pinder provides a detailed and coherent view of the evolution of the European Union, and investigates its future as Europe thrives in the new millennium.

Synopsis:

The author shows how and why the Union has developed from 1950. He explains the interplay between governments and federal elements in the institutions; consensus over the single market and the environment; and conflicts over agriculture, social policies, the euro, and frontier controls.

About the Author

John Pinder is Professor at the College of Europe and Chairman of the Federal Trust, London.
