About this book


People in Europe have seen their lives profoundly affected by the policies of the European Union. The contributors to this book provide an overview of the EU within global capitalism, a survey of policies within key issue areas and a treatment of the economics of family care, migrant workers and pensioners. It concludes with an analysis of the insider-outsider dilemmas of the imperfectly united Europe. The book takes a social perspective on economic issues and is accessible even to the non-specialist.
