9780060430429: International Economics

Husted and Melvin's International Economics provides a compact, accessible treatment of international economics that includes the most recent policy controversies in an issues-oriented analytical framework. Intuition and application of theory is stressed consistently, rather than memorization of competing theories and technical analysis.

From the Back Cover:

Assuming only an introductory knowledge of economics and with its comprehensive coverage of EU economic policies, European Economic Integration is ideally suited for all students taking courses on the economics of the EU as part of an Economics, Business Studies or inter-disciplinary European Studies degree.

With its clear and accessible style and its combination of theory and applications, European Economic Integration provides up-to-date coverage of the most important issues facing European economies as the European Union in the 21st Century. Much has changed in the European Union since publication of the third edition: the euro has successfully been launched and the accession of ten new member states agreed; a Constitutional Convention is in progress which will lay the political and institutional foundations for the Community for decades to come. The Fourth Edition has been substantially revised and updated in order to provide up-to-date coverage of the most important issues facing European economies in the 21st Century.

Key Features

  • Comprehensive coverage of economic theory and policy
  • Strong coverage of Europe’s external relations
  • Boxes within text summarise complicated institutional detail
  • Non-mathematical explanation of economic theory and detailed captions to graphs make text accessible to wide readership
  • Full list of references and guides to further reading at the end of each chapter provide reader with sources for more in-depth research for seminar preparation and written assignments.
New to Fourth Edition
  • Although the structure remains unchanged, the book has been comprehensively revised and updated.
  • A number of new contributors have been introduced.
  • The Environmental Policy chapter has been rewritten and strengthened.
  • The Common Agricultural and Fisheries Policy chapter has been revised and updated to include greater analysis of the political debates surrounding these subjects.
  • The political debates within the EU have been updated and cover the expansion of the Community into Central and Eastern Europe and the strains upon the Commission administration and the political decision-making process.
