European Union Enlargement by Neill Nugent

Since its first enlargement in 1973, expansion has become a way of life for the EU. The current round of enlargement is, however, unprecedented in its scale, in the diversity of applicants, and in the impact on EU structures and policies. This major new text brings together specially commissioned chapters to provide a coherent and comprehensive assessment of the historical and theoretical context of enlargement and its implications for the identity, governance, economics, policies and international role of the EU.


'A wide ranging overview on the overall enlargement process and its accompanying policies...Like other publications in the European Union Series, this book offers a comprehensive insight in reasonably accessible jargon...[A]n interesting read, both for experienced European analysts and those new to the subject...' - Francesca Restifo, Journal of European Affairs 'An accessible and timely volume.' - Marek Rybar, Political Studies Review '[A] very good (broad and up-to-date) picture of EU enlargment, it effects and implications for the Union. it should be a useful addition to any course on enlargements and the future functioning of the European Union.' - Ramunas Vilpisauskas, Journal of Common Market Studies '[C]omprehensive and accessible... a major textbook (which) provides a solid basis for any degree course on European Enlargement.' - Arjan Vliegenthart, Acta Politica'

A well laid out site, I love the fact that is separates paranormal fiction from fantasy and horror, which other sites don't.

For me, to read is to learn, to reflect, to escape, to think, to contemplate and my time for space and calm.
