About this book


Neill Nugent's book is well established as the leading student text in its field. It has been revised and updated throughout for its third edition with the addition of two new chapters on the Treaty of European Union and the increasingly important issue of External Relations. Having introduced the origins and historical development of the Community, the core of the book provides a detailed analysis of the powers, influence and functioning of its principal institutions and political actors and an analysis of its major policy interests and processes.
