This book is the first sustained analysis of the EU in global politics. It reveals that the EU is a multifaceted and variable actor, which cannot be fitted into any orthodox template of a nation state. Issues covered include how the field of trade relations forms the basis of the EU's activities, and the EU's controversial relationship to CFSP and defense.
