The Political Economy of Integration in the European Union has gained a well-deserved reputation as the key textbook in the area of European studies, economics and politics. This new and fully revised edition comprehensively surveys recent changes – such as the deepening and widening of European integration through eastward expansion and the Maastricht and Amsterdam Treaties – whilst continuing to offer a thorough overview of integration.

The core material has been revised to ensure the best possible grounding in the political economy of the EU. Jeffrey Harrop presents an accessible account of European integration, including:

• free trade, the customs union and the internal market
• agriculture and fisheries
• industrial and technological policies
• regional and social problems and policies
• monetary integration
• fiscal policy: taxation and the EU budget
• world-wide trading links
• an in-depth discussion of EU enlargement, including the proposed integration of Central and East European countries
• an assessment of energy, transport and environment policies
• an overall view of the progress and possible future of the European Union.

The book has been widely adopted for both specialist courses in economics as well as interdisciplinary courses in European studies. Teachers who are already using the book or who would like to consider it are invited to send for a 60-day examination copy of the third edition.
