Thoroughly updated, this new edition of "The European Union and the Member States" explores the complex relationship between the EU and each of its now 25 members. The country chapters follow a common format, considering: How and in what areas does EU policy affect, and how is it affected by, the member states? What mechanisms do the member states use to implement EU policy? What is each state's compliance record? Covering the full range of issues - from economic, social, and environmental, to security, to home and justice affairs - the authors offer an insightful discussion of the interplay of EU initiatives with strong, existing national policies and traditions.

Review quote

"This is a rich and timely volume full of novel glimpses into areas of perennial policy concern... as well as a host of less familiar concerns.... The extremely readable efforts to make sense of policy conundrums means the book may be used quite profitably in the classroom, and the very fact that all member states are covered testifies to the project's considerable comparative breadth." - William M. Downs, The Journal of Politics"
