This book is particularly concerned with EU law as it affects the US, Australia and other common law countries. The book is not overloaded with too much detail, and avoids complex theoretical discussions which are likely to confuse rather than to enlighten readers.

It adopts a clear and concise style without assuming knowledge of difficult legal concepts. The book's structure is different from many other books about EU law (including the Harvey and Longo text), in order to better facilitate the understanding of its readers. For example, the difficult concept of direct effect is ordinarily approached at the beginning of most books about European law, when it may be somewhat overwhelming for readers.

However, our book discusses this difficult topic in Chapter 12. By the time the reader reaches that chapter in the book, they will be thoroughly immersed in less challenging topics of EU law, and they will more readily comprehend this complex topic.

This book deals with the latest cases and legislation issued by EU institutions. The output of the Court of Justice and EU legislators are continually monitored and relevant developments are incorporated in each chapter. Each chapter contains extensive references to other books and articles for further reading. Lists of useful websites accompany each chapter.
