This book provides a very promising contextual understanding of the societal and political influences which have shaped EU law as it is now ... the book deserves to be applauded for the very effective contextual approach taken, which is novel to the area of EU law. -- Annegret Engel, Lund University * Nordic Journal of European Law * This is a very well put together book by some leading authors in the field ... the book will be a vital, and up-to-date resource, for the students in the completion of their assessments. -- Professor Paul James Cardwell * City, University of London * The book is good and covers the law ... by explaining the purpose of the law first rather than just the law in isolation. -- Matthew Cole * University of Exeter *
