The fourth edition of this popular reader, thoroughly updated, introduces students to both the concept of a united Europe and to integration theory.The expanded first two sections of the book now present the visions of the primary shapers of the union and its fundamental documents, as well as early currents in integration theory. The completely revised third and fourth sections explore recent theoretical developments in theory and practice as the EU wrestles with economic crises, political unrest, cultural conflict, and international competition.
