Book Description: The project of European integration now spans Europe, but in becoming bigger and broader the European Union has brought on itself significant criticism. As the EU becomes deeper, wider, and more ambitious, so opposition and scepticism become more prominent for citizens and more problematic for elites. Concerns about a 'democratic deficit' and the distance between European elites and publics have come to be a common feature of European politics. As a consequence Euroscepticism has become a part of the terrain of conflict between political parties across Europe. Opposing Europe? provides the first comprehensive review of party-based Euroscepticism across the breadth of contemporary Europe, and the first in-depth comparative academic study of Euroscepticism. This, the first of two volumes, is made up of chapters that map, describe, and analyse Euroscepticism in the party systems of a range of countries and the European Parliament. Each is written to a common frame of reference that differentiates 'hard' and 'soft' Euroscepticism. The volume looks across Europe and includes EU member states and candidate and non-member states in order to draw out comparative lessons that relate to the nature of political parties, party systems, and the domestic politics of European integration. Opposing Europe? is a groundbreaking, 'state of the art' book that provides a definitive review of a key issue in European politics. It is also one of the few attempts to integrate the fields of EU studies with both West European and East European studies in order to draw lessons about the way in which the EU interacts with domestic politics in both member and non-member states. Examining the way that parties position themselves and compete on the European issue provides powerful lessons for the trajectory of the European integration project more generally and on the prospects for the emergence of a European political system and polity.

Book Description: This original and thought provoking book addresses the major issues in the present debate surrounding the EU, including the impact of eastward enlargement as well as the prospect of further expansion. Treating the EU as a single political entity comparable to other political systems, the authors discuss the implications of the neighbourhood programmes, the balance between vertical and horizontal integration, the constitutional crisis and the foundations of a potential European society. They also focus on topics rarely raised in the political and academic debate including the hybrid nature of the EU: It does not qualify as a state, but it is not just another intergovernmental organisation; it promotes democracy, but it is not yet a democracy in its own right. The EU is placed within a global federal context, and it is argued that the territorial expansion from the EU15 to the EU27 has added substance, but also complexity to the EU. All this makes the book a unique addition to the current literature. Applying a broad, pan-European comparative perspective, this invaluable research tool will strongly appeal to academics and students of European studies and political science and institutions such as foreign offices, embassies and EU organizations.
