Constitutional Law of the European Union Summary

Constitutional Law of the European Union by Sionaidh Douglas-Scott

This new text in the Law in Focus series offers a distinctive focus on the public, constitutional law of the EU, treating this not as a set of formalist procedures, but relating it to underlying principles e.g. in terms of democracy, transparency , accountability and respect for individual rights. The book incorporates a critical assessment of the institutions and constitutional law of the EU and the part they play in the democratic process, an investigation of the member states, and the political ramifications of this relationship. An overriding objective of the book is to present EU law as a rather more exciting and engaging subject than often presented, locating it much more in its historical and political context than other works.

Constitutional Law of the European Union Reviews

"Douglas-Scott is the first British Author to write a book with a title that is as much provocative as it is timely"

"Douglas Scott does not aim at just describing the law, but at explaining it and clarifying European constitutional law by reflecting it through the lenses of other disciplines, namely political theory, philosophy and international relations"

"Douglas Scott's book shows the great advantage of the contextual approach in clarifying and explaining its legal subject by looking beyond the law"

"This appraoch makes EU law more lively, more lucid and finally more comprehensible to the student"

"...the book works well as a guide through the law and theoretical approaches to the Union, with valuable references to further literature"

Dr Philipp Dann, Referendair Kammergericht, Berlin (European Public Law Journal)

'...the author employs some very user-friendly techniques in explaining the law and the institutions of the EU...students will find the style both interesting and provocative...the text will succeed in students...taking a fresh interest in, and approach, to the subject.

' will become (if it has not already) a leading text, popular with the discerning student and recommended by a very large number of academic staff on a wide range of courses.'

Steve Foster, Coventry University, Law Teacher 2003, Vol 37/3.
