A CRITICAL INTRODUCTION TO EUROPEAN LAW, Cambridge University Press
Written by one of the leading academics specialising in European law and legal theory, A Critical Introduction to European Law explains the history and institutional framework of European Union law to students and scholars. Through the inclusion of commentaries on successive drafts of the Constitutional and Lisbon treaties, and discussion of recent developments such as the Turkish application, this third edition explores the evolving role of the EU in international and global politics. A consciously interdisciplinary approach, which draws on a variety of materials from political and legal thought, social theory, economic analysis, literature, history and cultural studies, is deployed to make the present state of Union law comprehensible.
• Introduces the new student to the institutional structure of and prevailing philosophy behind the European Union
• Explores crucial developments such as the Lisbon Treaty which have fundamentally changed attitudes to the European project
• Draws on material from across the social sciences, such as politics and economics, to give a truly comprehensive overview
