Résumé
EN
European Union studies has been in crisis in the US, as scholarly attention has shifted to other regions and US scholars have lost interest in “regional studies”. The way out of the crisis, already in progress, is through the “normalization” of EU studies, by the deepening of theoretical and empirical investigations of the EU in comparison with a widening range of regions and nation-states across issue areas, whether as a “state-like” actor, as a regulatory, judicial, or policyactor, as a political or a political economic actor. The article illustrates by briefly highlighting recent books that cross the Atlantic divide.
