According to the publisher , “The Law of the European Union is a complete reference work on all aspects of the law of the European Union, including the institutional framework, the Internal Market, Economic and Monetary Union and external policy and action. Completely revised and updated, with many newly written chapters, this fifth edition of the most thorough resource in its field provides the most comprehensive and systematic account available of the law of the European Union (EU). Written by a new team of experts in their respective areas of European law, its coverage incorporates and embraces many current, controversial, and emerging issues and provides detailed attention to historical development and legislative history of EU law. The book’s fifth edition embraces many new, ongoing, and emerging European legal issues. As in the previous editions, the presentation is notable for its attention to how the law relates to economic and political realities and how the various policy areas interact with each other and with the institutional framework.”
The book is a collaboration between forty-eight authors, all of whom are recognised academic specialists in, or experienced practitioners of European Union Law (and sometimes both). The book’s forty-one chapters make it an easily accessible tool for anyone who wants to be quickly informed about nearly any subject of Union law. Every chapter contains references to other important publications and cases on the subject matter.
The editors of The Law of the European Union are Pieter Jan Kuijper (University of Amsterdam), Fabian Amtenbrink (Erasmus University Rotterdam), Deirdre Curtin (University of Amsterdam & European University Institute), Bruno De Witte (Maastricht University), Alison McDonnell (Leiden University), Stefaan Van den Bogaert (Leiden University).
