Europe's Parliament: People, Places, Politics - Book Launch

A vivid portrait of what the European Parliament is really like - its atmosphere, the people, the politics and the daily working life. The European Parliament's former Secretary General, Julian Priestley, and Stephen Clark, its current head of web communications, paint an 'impressionist's canvas' that brings the European Parliament to life.
What is the European Parliament really all about? What is the reality behind the pre-conceptions, beyond the procedures? While other books tell you about the structures and processes of the EU, this new publication goes under the surface to reveal the human reality of Europe's parliament, to unearth what really makes it tick. What do MEPs actually do all day, how does an EU law really get made, how come the Parliament sits in two different cities, what is the European Parliament doing on Facebook and how do interns spend their Thursday nights? All this and more in a vivid portrait of this rich and often surprising institution, important to so many, known well by so few.
