This book on EC law sketches the basic cultures and contents of EC law, its institutional and economic aspects and the role it plays in the EC harmonization process. Besides the EC Treaty and the EEA Agreement, judgments of the European Court of Justice, legislative enactments of the EC Council of Ministers, administrative decisions of the European Commission and official publications of national and Community institutions form the principal sources of Evans' work.
In Part One of the book, Law of the Institutions, the composition, organization and function of the major EC political and juridical institutions are described. Part Two entitled Law of the Common Market covers the EC regulations and laws pertaining to trade, banking, services and taxation, among others.
Part Three, Law of Harmonization and External Relations goes into different harmonization mechanisms and foreign relations. Besides a very workable overview of EC law consisting of these three parts the book includes an index, bibliography and a list of abbreviations containing relevant English, French, German and Swedish terms and institutions.
