Description: Covering the history, governing institutions, and policies of the EU, McCormick and Olsen argue that the EU is one of the world’s economic and political superpowers, has brought far-reaching changes to the lives of Europeans, and has helped its member states to take a newly assertive role on the global stage. Unlike most other books on the EU, this text pays particular attention to the implications of the EU for the United States. Thoroughly revised and updated, with many new tables, figures, and boxes, the fifth edition takes into account developments in the debate about the character and significance of the EU, changes to the structure of EU institutions, the implications of the 2004 and 2007 enlargements, the Lisbon Treaty, the origins and nature of the crisis in the eurozone, and key policy developments.
