The Council of Europe - Structure, history and issues in European politics
A new book by Dr. Martyn Bond, visiting professor of European Politics and Policy at Royal Holloway, University of London, has just been published by Routledge. It looks at the Council of Europe under three main headings: its history, its structure and the main issues with which it is dealing currently.
It clearly sets the Council in the context of its times, reviews its essentially intergovernmental structure, and throws new light on its efforts to spread and strengthen democracy, human rights and the rule of law across the continent.
It achieves all this within 200 pages and, with the help of a detailed index, offers the reader an eminently readable and comprehensive overview of the Council today.
