The paper concludes by stating that the book is an excellent resource on the European Union, no matter what the level of knowledge of the reader.

From the Paper:

"However, many of these mechanisms and institutions are extremely complicated in terms of functionality and one of the great merits of John McCormick's book on the European Union, its politics and policies, is exactly this capacity to shed light for even someone who hasn't had the slightest contact with the realities of the EU. On the other hand, the book is very well written to reach a higher level for those who are interested in deeper realities of the European Union. It is an introductory book, but the more one reads into it, the more one becomes more acquainted with the functionalities of the EU and can increase the level of profundity."
