520    "For decades the European Union tried changing its 
       institutions, but achieved only unsatisfying political 
       compromises and modest, incremental treaty revisions. In 
       late 2009, however, the EU was successfully reformed 
       through the Treaty of Lisbon. Reforming the European Union
       examines how political leaders ratified this treaty 
       against all odds and shows how this victory involved all 
       stages of treaty reform negotiations--from the initial 
       proposal to referendums in several European countries. The
       authors emphasize the strategic role of political 
       leadership and domestic politics, and they use state-of-
       the-art methodology, applying a comprehensive data set for
       actors' reform preferences. They look at how political 
       leaders reacted to apparent failures of the process by 
       recreating or changing the rules of the game. While 
       domestic actors played a significant role in the process, 
       their influence over the outcome was limited as leaders 
       ignored negative referendums and plowed ahead with 
       intended reforms. The book's empirical analyses shed light
       on critical episodes: strategic agenda setting during the 
       European Convention, the choice of ratification instrument,
       intergovernmental bargaining dynamics, and the reaction of
       the German Council presidency to the negative referendums 
       in France, the Netherlands, and Ireland."--|cProvided by
