The European Union
A Bibliography

This is an updated, revised, and better-organized version of the previous editions that appeared in 1994 and 1997. This third edition, uploaded on August 16, 2001, will be periodically updated online. With respect to the previous editions, I have checked every entry either in the catalogue of the Library of Congress, that of Memorial University, or those of the publishers. Needless to say, this is not an exhaustive bibliography on the European Union. I have only included works in English and French. Much remains to be done, for instance, adding articles from academic journals in a systematic manner, and refining even further the categories in which the bibliography is currently divided. I will be glad to make any addition, or correction, you will send.
