About this book

Reviews

'This fine-grained volume chronicles the complex processes leading to the Treaty of Lisbon. It provides an essential background to the continuing debate on EU treaty reform.'

Helen Wallace, European Institute, London School of Economics and Political Science, UK

'Phinnemore has produced what will undoubtedly be seen as the definite account of how the Lisbon Treaty has come about. The volume is a detailed and extremely valuable record of how the provisions in the treaty were negotiated, demonstrating the way in which various interests and particular circumstances have interacted in bringing about this important reform. Beyond this, Phinnemore identifies the lessons that can be drawn from the Lisbon experience and the more general patterns that explain the outcomes of treaty revision. This book ought to be standard reading for anyone seeking to understand the complex processes that underpin decision-making in the European Union.'

Thomas Christiansen, Department of Political Science, University of Maastricht, The Netherlands
