Review

In this groundbreaking and exemplary study, Noutcheva explains why Western Balkan states have varied so much in their compliance with the European Union's accession requirements: When matters of national sovereignty and territory are on the table, the EU lacks the legitimacy to impose a solution. Theoretically innovative and empirically rich, this book offers a comprehensive study of the EU's foreign and enlargement policies in the Western Balkans -- and helps us understand the limits of the EU's so-called normative power. - Milada Anna Vachudova, Associate Professor of Political Science, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
