The Economics of European Integration, 3rd edition, builds on the success and popularity of the 2nd edition and provides students with an accessible presentation of the facts, theories and controversies driving rapid change in the heart of Europe. The authors combine essential elements of European history, institutions, law, politics and policies with clear and accessible explanations of the economic principles of European integration. The result is an expert analysis of the contemporary status of integration within the European Union. Designed for students taking modules in European economics, the book offers a rigorous yet clear exposition of economic arguments alongside examples, illustrations, and questions that bring the contemporary topic to life. The up-to-date economics coverage is also ideal for students taking economics modules that do not require extensive analysis of social and policy issues.
