View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This is an authoritative, one-volume, and independent treatment of the history, functioning and nature of the European integration. Written by a selection of leading scholars. It covers the major institutions, policies, and events in the history of integration, whilst also providing a guide to the major theoretical approaches that have been used to study it over time. By bringing together such a distinguished cast covering such a wide array of themes, the Handbook is intended as a one stop shop for all those interested in the European Union and its predecessors. Written in an accessible style, the volume is intended to shape the discipline of EU studies, and to establish itself as the essential point of reference for all those interested in European integration, both in universities and more broadly. It represents a timely guide to an institution that is much discussed but often only imperfectly understood.

... a remarkable collection of thought-provoking contributions about the most important themes within the study of European integration. Its analytical breadth and scope make it both a pleasure and a necessity to read for any scholar in EU affairs. For students interested in the process of European integration or the inner workings of the Union, the Oxford Handbook of the European Union ... is a must. (Catherine E. de Vries, Oxford University)

The Handbook can help the educated reader to achieve clarity by providing a very complete overview of what the European Union is and how it works. Of course, such an extremely comprehensive 800-page volume can be daunting as a first read for non-specialists, but the Handbook can be an interesting and informative read for them too. Giulia Pastorella, LSE Review of Books
