“A wonderful book”,
Martin Schulz, President of the European Parliament
An insiders’ view of what the European Parliament is really like: the environment and atmosphere of Brussels, Strasbourg and Luxembourg; the MEPs and the staff; the internal politics; the personalities; and how the work is actually done. Illustrated throughout with more than 350 photographs, this book will fascinate anyone who has ever wanted to get a flavour of what it’s like to work at the European Parliament.
