520    "This book examines the struggle of the European Union 
       bureaucracy to maintain its autonomy in an increasingly 
       complex institutional setting and adverse political 
       environment. Using an original survey of nearly two 
       hundred top European Commission officials, it shows that 
       the European Union is a coherent organization that shares 
       a common culture of supranationalism. The European Union's
       multicephalous structure of political authority limits the
       capacity of European politicians to curb the autonomy of 
       the Commission but tends to undermine the legitimacy of 
       the organization, which finds itself under persistent 
       political attacks. These attacks inadvertently help the 
       organization bolster its defenses against the external 
       threats and trigger internal legitimation processes that 
       reinforce the devotion of its employees to its 
       institutional mission. The rich survey data show how 
       Commission bureaucrats establish themselves as the 
       "custodians of Europe." The book helps disentangle the 
       complexity of the Commission and makes a contribution to 
       the study of international bureaucracies, a topic that has
       received little attention"--|cProvided by publisher
