"This work is much more than a typical American 'casebook'; it combines, indeed, systemic explanations with 'excerpts' of cases and judgments which illustrate the topic in a highly educational and informative manner while, at the same time, stimulating in the reader the desire 'to go beyond and further'."
— Jean-Louis Dewost, Président de Section honoraire au Conseil d'Etat; former Director General of the Legal Service of the Council of the European Union, then Director General of the Legal Service of the European Commission (translated from French)
