An immediate best-seller on first publication, John McCormick's Understanding the European Union provides a uniquely broad-ranging but concise introduction to the EU covering in one volume all major aspects of European integration. The third edition is systematically revised and updated throughout reflecting the major changes brought about by the 2004 enlargement round. It also includes a full assessment of the EU constitution, the impact of the Euro and much expanded coverage of EU policies and policy making.
