This book presents a comparative perspective to the study of European politics, focusing on the unique and transformative effect of European Union on the politics of its member states - in effect, the Europeanization of European politics. For no other world region is there a similar intensity of Treaty and other obligations on a set of neighboring states, nor a comparable depth of of supranational governance. The concept of Europeanism as an evaluative theme is used to explore this unique, sui generis, region, its states, and its political transformation in the 21st century.

"The edited collection by Bretherton and Mannin is a welcome addition to the growing volume of and sophistication in Europeanization studies. This edited volume also includes a good range of policy chapters in addition to those covering individual countries, providing historical breadth as well as rich descriptive detail; it should find a wide audience." - Robert Ladrech, Professor of European Politics, Keele University, UK
