A comprehensively updated and expanded new edition of a classic text, this authoritative and wide-ranging volume provides expert analysis on the key issues across all areas of European Union law - including its constitutional, procedural and substantive aspects.

In particular, coverage of the constitutional and procedural elements includes; historical background and development of the European Union; constitutional structure of the Union; 'The Treaties': interrelationship and fundamental (constitutional) rules; the institutional framework; jurisdiction of, and actions before, the Court of Justice; sources, principles and methods of Union law.

Comprehensive coverage of the substantive law includes:-

  • basic rules;
  • citizenship of the Union;
  • the internal market;
  • the four freedoms;
  • competition;
  • economic and monetary policy;
  • social policy;
  • environmental policy;
  • commercial policy.
Importantly, the book incorporates the Treaty of Lisbon reorientation and post-Lisbon developments. Throughout the book there is extensive reference to primary sources (Treaty, legislation, case law) and to issues of national adaptation which, together, bring a depth of understanding and analysis to this increasingly complex field of law.

Written in elegant and crystal clear English, rich in references to the primary materials of the Treaties, the principal legislation and the key case law of the Court of Justice, this highly detailed and comprehensive book will be an indispensable resource for all Legal practitioners whose practice must take account of EU Law.
