Review quote

'This elegantly and intelligently written book offers a meaningful introduction to students without overwhelming them with grand theories. It will also, as a conceptually well constructed short book, offer their lecturers something with which to enrich their teaching of EU law.' Laurence Gormley, University of Groningen 'Succinct, accessible and well-written, the best introductory EU law text on the market by a long way.' Urfan Khaliq, Cardiff University 'A fantastic publication: clear, precise, to the point while making students aware of the academic and theoretical debates. The language is highly accessible and clearly written by someone with ample teaching experience in the field of EU law. Didactically and substantively, one of the best, if not the best books on the market ...' Markus Gehring, University of Cambridge 'The text is certainly a great combination of theory and practice - there is an exhaustive list of relevant case law. What I enjoyed the most was Schutze's style ... The current contribution is an elegant interplay, with normativeness and stories from 'real life' ... I would recommend this volume to anyone who wants to become acquainted with the current reality and perspectives on the EU.' Tanel Kerikmae, Review and Critical Commentary
