'Craig & de Burca has become a byword for quality: legally accurate and contextually rich'
Christopher Hilson, Professor of Law, University of Reading

Building on its unrivalled reputation as the definitive EU law textbook, this sixth edition continues to provide clear and insightful analysis of all aspects of European Union law.

Drawing on their wealth of experience both teaching and writing in this area, Paul Craig and Grainne de Burca provide a comprehensive and enhanced account of their classic text. Working closely as an author team for over twenty years, they succeed in bringing together a unique mix of illuminating commentary and well-chosen extracts from a wide range of cases, legislation and academic articles.

All chapters have been carefully structured and designed to enhance student learning at all levels, laying the foundations of the subject while building analysis of more complex areas and cutting edge debates. Each chapter opens with a concise overview of the 'central issues', providing valuable context, before drawing together key analysis in a comprehensive chapter conclusion to provide a clear yet complete picture of the subject.

The book is accompanied by an Online Resource Centre which includes the following resources:
- An interactive map of the EU, providing key facts about each member state
- An interactive timeline, tracing key dates in the development of the EU
- Author video discussing the importance of studying EU law
- Updates to the law post-publication

Review quote

Craig & de Burca is the bible of EU Law, I couldn't imagine studying without it. * Marianne Muona, Former Law Student, Helsinki University * By combining an impressive selection of cases, commentary and legislation, EU Law: Text, Cases, and Materials has obtained (and kept) an almost biblical status. This accolade is well-deserved; the material remains accessible whilst providing wonderful academic scholarship. * The Student Law Journal * Craig & de Burca has become a byword for quality: legally accurate and contextually rich. * Christopher Hilson, Professor of Law , University of Reading * The cases make it an interesting and enriching book for scholars because it offers depth and new insights, but the clear structure and the pedagogical genius of both authors make the book very suitable to students studying EU law for the first time...We strongly recommend this book to every EU law student. * Chris Thomale, Juristische Schulung * Deservedly regarded by students, researchers, and experts around the world as the key textbook on the discipline * Dr Nicola Countouris, Reader in EU Law, University College London *
