      This book is famous for a reason within EU circles. The model developed is one very different to preceding models of integration. While it is a well argued and structured book, it has come under attack from many circles and for some time. This does not stop it from being an important contribution and a book any EU student should at least touch upon at some point.For those complaining about length, there is a journal article. The advantage of the book is you can see the application and empirical [...]
