Based on an analytical evaluation of both the weaknesses and strengths of the Italian political system, Italy in the European Union is the first book to offer a detailed and comprehensive description of Italy's contribution to European Union policy-making across a wide range of policies. Combining empirical investigation and theoretical analysis, it functions on two levels: as a nuanced picture of Italy's role in the EU and as a study of the EU as it has been transformed by subsequent waves of enlargement.
