About this book

The Euro crisis catapulted the EU into its most serious political crisis since its inception, leaving it torn between opposing demands for more sovereignty and solidarity. This volume focuses on the key themes of disunion, sovereignty and solidarity. It assesses the main EU institutions: member states, civil society actors and policy areas.

Reviews

'The book could not have been published at a more timely moment, with the members of the eurozone seeking further and deeper integration to overcome the crisis of the common currency, while the United Kingdom contemplates whether it wishes to remain a member at all [It] provides both an excellent introduction for new students of the EU, as well as an informative and highly topical overview for scholars interested in the various sub-fields of the discipline.' - Common Market Studies

"The European Union is undergoing a profound crisis. This book provides unrivalled insight into the nature of this crisis and a powerful, sustained analysis of the growing tensions between the demands of national sovereignty and the imperatives of solidarity in many different arenas and institutions, which together are threatening the Union with fragmentation and decline." - Andrew Gamble, Prof of Politics, Department of Politics and Internationa Studies, University of Cambridge

"European Disunion: Between Sovereignty and Solidarity identifies and dissects the weaknesses and contradictions in European integration. Editors Jack Hayward and Rüdiger Wurzel bring together leading specialists to assess how the European Union has fared in balancing sovereignty and solidarity. The verdict is nuanced, but the weight of the evidence that the authors uncover suggests a future of disunion rather than union. The book provides an indispensable guide as the Eurozone endgame unfolds." - Liesbet Hooghe, W.R. Kenan Professor, UNC- Chapel Hill and Chair in Multilevel Governance, VU University Amsterdam

"Jack Hayward, Rudi Wurzel and their collaborators have produced a fine, timely and accessible study of the recent history, current state and future prospects of the European project. No one who wants to understand the deeper forces behind the upheavals that have plagued the European Union in the last few years can afford not to read it." - Professor David Marquand, University of Oxford.
