Wyatt and Dashwood's European Union Law

Sixth Edition

By Michael Dougan, Barry Rodger, Alan Dashwood, Eleanor Spaventa, Derrick Wyatt

First published 30 years ago, Wyatt and Dashwood's European Union Law was a landmark publication, designed and written for students taking degree level courses in EU law. In the intervening years, new editions (previously published by Sweet & Maxwell) have appeared at regular intervals, firmly establishing the book as a reliable and authoritative text for scholars, practitioners, and the courts. Now available from Hart Publishing, Oxford, this sixth edition offers comprehensive coverage of those aspects of EU law most commonly studied at the degree level. Part I introduces the history and foundations of the EU's primary law. Part II looks at the EU's institutions, decision-making procedures, and competences. The constitutional fundamentals of direct effect and supremacy, effective judicial protection before national courts, general principles of EU law, and the Charter of Fundamental Rights are examined in Part III. Part IV deals with the EU judiciary, focusing on direct actions before the EU courts and preliminary references from national courts. Part V covers the internal market: free movement of goods, EU citizenship, workers, establishment and services, the services directive, corporate establishment, and company law harmonization. Part VI looks at competition law: Articles 101, 102 TFEU, enforcement issues, and other related competition issues. Part VII includes two new chapters: one dealing with the area of freedom, security, and justice, and the other concerned with the EU's external relations. Wyatt and Dashwood's European Union Law is a valuable source of reference on this complex and ever-expanding body of law. It provides an accurate, critical, pragmatic, and original account of the subject.
