The European Parliament is designed to provide a practical textbook and desktop reference on every aspect of the functioning of the Parliament. Over eight editions, The European Parliament has established itself as an important landmark in the literature on the European Union.

The book provides an invaluable guide to the institution's history, power and politics. It explains both what drives the Parliament internally and the dynamics of its increasingly central role in the EU political system as a whole. For academics and practitioners alike, Corbett, Jacobs and Shackleton offer a superb starting-point for any serious understanding of the world's only elected transnational parliament.

No one can seek to understand the functioning of the European Union without understanding its Parliament. This book -- now in its eighth edition -- is recognised in academia and among practitioners as the authoritative guide to the European Parliament.A"Herman Van Rompuy, President of the European Council
