About this book

Sharp in focus and succinct in analysis, this Pivot examines the latest developments and scholarly debates surrounding the sources of the European Union's crisis of legitimacy and possible solutions. It examines not only the financial and economic dimensions of the current crisis, but also those crises at the heart of the EU integration project.

Reviews



'This bold and invigorating book is a breath of fresh air. Murray and Longo are great critical friends to the EU, offering both a telling diagnosis of its longstanding and several crises, and workable suggestions for their solution. It should be required reading for anyone with an interest in making a better EU, one worthy of its half-billion citizens.' Professor Alex Warleigh-Lack, FAcSS, University of Surrey, UK

'This is a bold and lively book that cuts through the narrowness of much current commentary to reveal the many dimensions of the EU's legitimacy crisis. Through an analysis that combines scholarly nuance with accessibility to a wide readership, Longo and Murray develop a challenging yet ultimately optimistic account of the way ahead for the EU.' Professor Ben Rosamond, University of Copenhagen, Denmark

'This is a beautifully written book, engaging and at the same time deep in its analysis. It will find a prominent place in the burgeoning literature on the EU´s financial and fiscal crisis. Those interested in the future of Europe will find in Longo and Murray's piece food for thought.' Professor Carlos Closa, European University Institute, Florence, Italy

'This short book is an informed and thoughtful diagnosis of the EU's current predicament. With extreme clarity, Longo and Murray reconstruct factual developments, review intellectual debates and outline the possible paths to recovery. I fully subscribe to their well-argued and passionate call for a more responsible and farsighted political leadership, capable of responding to the EU's alarming legitimacy and effectiveness crisis.' Professor Maurizio Ferrera, University of Milan, Italy
