only text that offers both country case studies and discussion of
the European Union in one sustained volume. The contributors, an
authoritative group of Americans and Europeans, explore the new
Europe_west and east_using intertwining themes of domestic
politics, European integration, and European security. The
chapters_divided into country, institutional, and thematic
sections_are both student and teacher friendly: clearly written,
engaging, and tailored for classroom discussion. Each chapter
provides necessary basic information and explanations, enhanced by
an accessible and distinctive perspective on concepts and current
debates. Now thoroughly revised for 2004, Europe Today is the first
European politics text to offer current analysis on the invasion of
Iraq, NATO and European security, U.S.-European relations, and
enlargement issues. All chapters from the first edition have been
comprehensively updated, and completely new chapters have been
added on Germany, France, Great Britain, Spain, Poland, monetary
union, security, and migration. With its strong international
emphasis and focus on Europe before and after Iraq, professors will
be able to use this text to lead students toward a coherent view of
intra-European conflicts, Europe and the United States, and
Europe's international responsibilities. A new website devoted
exclusively to the book, with regularly updated statistics,
analysis, and links for each chapter, will provide a rich resource
for students seeking additional information and researching
