This book addresses three major questions. First, to what extent, if any, has the existence of the EU substantively affected the member states, in terms of either what they do or how they do it? Second, what, if any, are the implications of integration for the conceptual and theoretical approaches commonly utilized to study national politics? Can the tools used by political scientists to study national politics in Western Europe withstand, any more than can the member states themselves, the pressures imposed by Europeanization? Finally, does the EU represent another laboratory in which to test such concepts or is it, because of its specificity, an entity which requires sui generis concepts to explain its actions and developments? How far does the application of concepts developed from the study of other phenomena help us to explain the workings and development of European integration?
