Review Praise for the Third Edition `This book is the best of its kind...there is no more satisfactory introduction to the life of the European Union. I insist that my students use it.' Ernst B. Haas, Professor of Government, University of California, Berkeley

Praise for the Fourth Edition `More than ever, the fourth edition of Wallace and Wallace is a "must". This book nicely combines an analysis of EU sectoral policies by the best experts with the overall and systemic approach to the complex European machinery of the two editors. There is nothing equivalent on the market. 'Yves Meny, Director of the Robert Schuman Centre, European Institute

`Readers looking for a solid, comprehensive account of European policy-making, authored by some of the best experts in the business, need look no further than this thoroughly updated revision of the Wallaces' classic text.' Robert D. Putnam, Professor of Government, Harvard University

`Empirical richness and deep insights into the complexity, dynamics, and varieties of policy-making in the EU make this book an invaluable guide for those who want to learn what is really happening in Europe. It is also a powerful reminder to theorists and model-builders that attempts to force the intricacies of European multi-level governance into a single analytical scheme can easily end in frustration.' Johan P. Olsen, ARENA Programme, University of Oslo

`In a crowded market of text books, the fourth edition of Policy-Making in the European Union extends the lead this book enjoys over its many competitors. Comprehensive in coverage, this book offers a depth of analysis that makes students understand the complexities of Europe's emerging polity without burdening them with unnecessary detail. This text works extremely well in very different kinds of courses that cover the policy process in the European Union.' Peter J. Katzenstein, Walter S. Carpenter, Jr. Professor of International Studies, Cornell University

`Excellent all-round collection on policy process.' A L Macmullen, Lecturer, University of Durham

`Excellent update providing depth and scope combined with clarity of analysis and theoretical understanding.' J Lodge, Professor, University of Leeds

`A useful, compendious, up-to-date view of the E.U.' Dr Stephen Fishor, Lecturer, University of Exeter

`It is up to date and concise. The best thing about it is that it is appropriate for both undergraduate and graduate courses.' Dr Elisa Roller, Lecturer in European Politics, University of Manchester

`The addition of new chapters on repectively the institutional setting and analytical approaches.. makes this edition even more of a self- standing textbook.' Ulrich Sedelmeier, West European Politics Vol 24 No 3.
