Abstract

177 Chantal Joubert LL. M.1 Policing the European Union, M. Anderson, et al, (Clarendon Press, Oxford 1995, 289 pages) What is in a book, or should I say what should be in a book? Maybe that is one important question a person writing a book review should ask herself, especially when this book is an academic one. Puzzling to answer that one question, I have tried to distinguish two categories of criteria, one set being more or less objective, the other more or less subjective. For me, and in that sense the framework of evaluation I have chosen remains predomi- nantly subjective, an academic book should have the following objective features: a detailed and coherent table of contents; a detailed and coherent index; a coherent relation between the table of contents and the index so that they are useful tools when doing research; the foot- notes and other annotations should be done in a harmonized and useful way throughout the book. As for the contents of the book, the following more subjective features should be evaluated: the balance in the topics treated; the harmony in the way the topics are treated (superficially or in depth); harmony in style,
