A new and fully updated edition of Jo Shaw's popular textbook, Law of the European Union provides an account of the constitutional principles and legal institutions of the European Union. Written in an easy-to-understand and engaging style, the book assumes no prior knowledge. It places EU law in its context, examining its relationship with the national legal systems and national constitutions, as well as the role of the EU within a wider global order.
This much anticipated new edition is completely up-to-date after the coming into force of the Treaty of Amsterdam and fully updated in all areas of coverage. It covers the 2000 Intergovernmental Conference, the Convention drafting a Fundamental Rights Charter for the EU, the resignation of the Commission in March 1999 and the programme for reforming the Commission. Two new chapters deal with values and principles in the EU constitutional framework, and at the end of most chapters can be found lists of relevant websites for further reading.
This is...one of the best books of its kind on the market. It is student friendly in the best sense of the term. While in no way patronising or talking-down to its readers, it steers them thoroughly and in a helpfully structured way through the subject and anticipates the difficulties often encountered by those studying it for the first time. The achievement of these objectives is assisted by placing the law in its wider historical, political and economic contexts. Problems and complexities are treated clearly and firmly. The book systematically encourages student-centred learning by posing questions and review problems and providing suggestions for further reading and lists of key websites as well as a full general bibliography.' - Professor John Bridge, Journal of European Information Association
