Kurzbeschreibung

Since the second edition of this popular Very Short Introduction published in 2007, the world has faced huge economic and political change. Showing how and why the EU has developed from 1950 to the present day, John Pinder and Simon Usherwood cover a range of topics, including the Union's early history, the workings of its institutions and what they do, the interplay between 'eurosceptics' and federalists, and the role of the Union beyond Europe in international affairs and
as a peace-keeper.

In this fully updated third edition, Pinder and Usherwood incorporate new material on the Lisbon treaty, the EU fiscal crisis, the state of the single Euro currency in its wake, and conclude by considering the future of the Union and the choices and challenges that may lie ahead.

ABOUT THE SERIES: The Very Short Introductions series from Oxford University Press contains hundreds of titles in almost every subject area. These pocket-sized books are the perfect way to get ahead in a new subject quickly. Our expert authors combine facts, analysis, perspective, new ideas, and enthusiasm to make interesting and challenging topics highly readable.

4.0 von 5 Sternen European Union: Institutional View 4. Oktober 2013
Format:Taschenbuch
European Union is one of the most ambitious and expansive political projects in history. Its ultimate goal, it is now quite clear, is the unification of almost all of Europe into a single political entity. The project has grown from its rather modest origins from a purely economic organization into what is now one of the most important political and economic unions in the World. However, both the path to this point and the future ahead are beset by numerous challenges.

I’ve been eying this short introduction for a long time. As someone who is originally from Europe and who still has the majority of the family members living there, I cannot really afford to be ignorant of the events on that continent and its political structure. However, I am now glad that I’ve waited to purchase this book in its third edition, since it now includes mentioning of Croatia. Since I am now officially an EU citizen, I have even more reasons to try to understand it the best I can. After reading this book I certainly have much more appreciation for all the intricacies of the EU’s political mechanisms.

This is a very detailed book with a lot of information and facts strewn throughout its slim 150 pages. It takes a largely chronological approach to the Europe’s integration, and goes into some detail in explaining various policy decisions. The book assumes a fairly neutral point of view, aiming to inform the reader rather than to shape his or her opinions. The third edition is thoroughly updated and includes all the major developments up to 2013. However, as witnessed by the tumultuousness of the ongoing economic crisis, all of the European institutions are still in the state of flux, and it is very likely that the fourth edition of this book will be in order before too long.

Even though the book is well written and extremely informative, it is still a pretty dry read. Various policies, political and economic maneuvers can feel rather esoteric, technical and opaque. The book's view of EU is highly institutional, without much scope for deeper ideas or relevance to the daily lives of most Europeans. This is probably the reflection of how most Eurocrats view their project: as an ongoing bureaucratic venture that is almost an end in itself. There might be many virtues to this attitude, but it sure doesn't manage to inspire.
1.0 von 5 Sternen Incomprehensible 8. April 2014
Von Dancing Cat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I'm a professor who assigned this book to my class---mistake! It's incomprehensible to anyone who doesn't already understand the European Union. Very poorly written. It reads as if the paragraphs are cut-and-paste from something bigger. Very choppy, no narrative flow and lots of jargon. For an introduction to the EU, you're better off googling for an overview--even the Wikipedia entry is clearer.
2.0 von 5 Sternen Wikipedia explains better 6. April 2014
Von Neori - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I read 1/5 of the book and couldn't understand very well how the system works. Wikipedia explained much better. Sentences are long with too many general phrases like: 'increasingly significant', 'remain much more important', 'EU has to find its place'. I expected this book to be straight to the point explanation and not some general thoughts. If you are looking for an overview, search web.
4.0 von 5 Sternen Quick read 25. März 2014
Von U. Sedlock - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Used the book in European Geography class, it's a quick read, concise and down to the point. Good for anybody wanting to have a quick guide on the European Union, institutions and brief history. Nothing too elaborate, but a good starting point.
