The European Union AudioBook Summary
The European Union (EU) stands out as a fascinatingly unique political organization. On the one hand, it has shown the potential for developing deep and wide-ranging cooperation between member states, going far beyond that found anywhere else in the world. On the other, it is currently in the throes of a phase of profound uncertainty about its viability and future.
Showing how and why the EU has developed from 1950 to the present day, this Very Short Introduction covers a range of topics, including the Union’s early history, the workings of its institutions and what they do, the interplay between “eurosceptics” and federalists, and the role of the Union beyond Europe in international affairs and as a peacekeeper.
