European Political Economy provides a useful didactic tool for all scholars and students interested in a non-formalised political economy approach to European economic integration. Beginning with a theoretical orientation to European economic issues and European political economy, the author shows that political scientific approaches to political economy can generate new and important insights into the nature and dynamics of the European Union (EU).
The chapters collectively present a comprehensive and coherent statement of political scientists' definitions of political economy, and apply their concepts, theories and insights to contemporary developments in the EU. The book derives its distinctive focus from an emphasis on ideas, interests and institutions as basic approaches to the study of European economic and political developments.
Leila Simona Talani is a lecturer in European political economy at the University of Bath and a research associate at the European Institute, LSE.
