Staniland has written a crisp and insightful account of the metamorphosis of the complex European aviation regulatory landscape. Few areas of the world have embraced global governance as vigorously as has the European Union, and the new competitive environment creates formidable challenges and opportunities for EU carriers—and carriers competing with them. This is a highly readable contribution to the literature.
— Paul Stephen Dempsey, McGill University
A masterful analysis. Staniland's ability to synthesize a vast array of primary and secondary materials into a coherent whole will be a boon to any serious scholar of international aviation. But those interested in the larger political and economic challenges of integrating Europe's economies will also find in this work a fascinating case study of the competing and often contradictory national and supranational interests that influence the regulatory profile of a large, complicated, and highly politicized industry.
— Brian Havel, DePaul University
Staniland should be commended for this admirable piece of work, which sheds light and helps to understand the whole process. . . . A very significant contribution [that] provides an intelligent perspective on the key features of European integration in the air from a new angle by focusing in particular on the relationship between the airline industry and its regulators.
— Daniel Calleja, from the foreword, Air Transport Directorate for the EC
