This short introductory text de-mystifies the European Union's structures and operation. Blending scholarly expertise and practitioners' experience, the authors introduce and analyse the EU's key actors, processes and developments. Amongst the book's distinctive features are exhibits contrasting how the EU appears on paper (its treaties and formal rules) with how it works in practice. The book also features exhibits comparing the EU with other international bodies and systems of government. This will help students to better understand the EU by underlining how it is like other systems of governance and in what ways it is unique. The book's overall aim is to provide an accessible, lively introduction to how the EU works and why it matters.

If you want a clear, readable overview that addressses how the EU works and the most important forces driving EU policies, this is your book - it does exactly what it says on the tin!, Orla Gillen Focus: News and Views from the European Information AssociationR Feb 2003
The book is coherent and well knit, and includes discussion questions, suggestions for further reading and a list of useful websites at the end of each chapter. It strikes the right balance between breadth and depth and succeeds in conveying information about the EU grounded in research while maintaining a user-friendly style that is likely to be welcomed by absolute beginners facing the EU's daunting reputation for extreme complexity.
