2 - 4 weeks availability


The revised third edition of this text provides an account of the constitutional principles and legal institutions of the European Union. The accessible style makes the book suitable not only for first year undergraduates but also for A level students and non-law undergraduates. This edition textbook has been substantially rewritten to take into account changes in EU law resulting from the Treaty of Amsterdam. It covers the 2000 Intergovernmental Conference, the Convention drafting a Fundamental Rights Charter for the EU, the resignation of the Commission in March 1999 and the reform programme for the Commission. Two new chapters deal with values and principles in the EU consitutional framework, and at the end of most chapters can be found lists of relevant websites for further reading.
