"On the whole, the work presents a wealth of information and analysis that will help in the understanding of major policy issues in single countries and throughout Europe."

L.E. Jorbin

This is a good supplemental read but might be a bit too difficult for 1st year students. However, I will recommend it as additional reading for special assignments.
