Review from previous edition This remarkable text has a lot going for it. What I like best about it is that it uses expert authors' deep understanding to take on contemporary issues that threaten the European Union's nearly 60-year experiment in the pooling of national sovereignty. * Professor Neil Fligstein, University of California Berkeley *
