- Publish Date: 2007-05-03
- Binding: Paperback
This clearly written and comprehensive book, a true twenty-first-century enterprise, is the only work that offers a sustained and unified set of both country case studies and analysis of the European Union. The contributors, an authoritative group of Americans and Europeans, explore the new Europe-West and Eastusing intertwining themes of domestic politics, European integration, and European security. Each chapter provides a foundation of basic political information and explanation, enhanced by distinctive and informed perspectives on current issues.
Now in its third edition, Europe Today presents the most up-to-date and thoughtful treatment available on the war in Iraq, debates over NATO's evolving role, U.S.-European relations, enlargement issues, and the challenges of terrorism in a European context. All chapters have been thoroughly revised, and completely new chapters have been added on France, Great Britain, Russia, Central and Eastern Europe, EU law, and terrorism.
With its strong international emphasis and focus on Europe before and after Iraq, this book will lead readers toward a coherent view of intra-European conflicts, Europe and the United States, and Europe's international responsibilities. A new website devoted exclusively to the book, with regularly updated statistics, analysis, and links for each chapter, provides a rich resource for those seeking additional information. http://www.jhubc.it/europe-today/
