MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is an outstanding collection which captures like no other current work the deeper causes of the continuing quagmire of European integration. Covering the period from the European Council's 2000 Lisbon agreement to the rejection of the Constitution and Irish no to the Lisbon treaty, it highlights the inherent problems of neoliberal regulation as applied by the EU. With several chapters devoted to the latest round of enlargement to Central and Eastern Europe, the book powerfully demonstrates the limits of one-sided financial regulation and social downsizing. Written by specialists who in no way can be suspected of an anti-European agenda, the book is testimony to what a progressive, pluralist approach to the study of integration can achieve.' - Kees van der Pijl, University of Sussex, UK

'Focusing on social struggles over the hegemony of the European project, this edited volume takes stock of the politics of neo-liberal restructuring in the European Union since the Lisbon Summit. The contributors provide convincing analyses of the bias towards liberalisation inherent in the European Integration process, but also point towards emerging contestation, countermovements and the potential for European re-regulation. Anyone with an interest in the state of affairs of European politics at the intersection of International Political Economy and Comparative Political Economy should not miss this important contribution.' - Martin Hoepner, Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies, Germany

'... what makes this such a strong collection is the authors' attention to the economic dimension, since capitalist contradictions demand a constant reconfiguration of 'institutionalized compromise' both within the hegemonic bloc of social forces and between them and the rest. The clarity and originality of the analysis featured here deserves the widest study.' Michael Keaney, Metropolia Business School, Vantaa, Finland, Political Studies Review

'As Jessop highlights, what makes this such a strong collection is the authors' attention to the economic dimension, since capitalist contradictions demand a constant reconfiguration of 'institutionalized compromise' (p.viii) both within the hegemonic bloc of social forces and between them and the rest. The clarity and originality of the analysis featured here deserves the widest study. - Micheal Keaney, Political Studies Review
