Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Discusses how a distinctive 'European' identity has grown over the centuries, especially with the EU.

Book News Annotation:

Fifteen essays written by government advisors as well as university professors in anthropology, history, political science, and social science address the question of whether there is a collective "idea" of Europe as a political and cultural domain. Ranging in time from the ancient world to the present, topics include "Europe" in the Middle Ages, the European citizen according to Max Weber, and Muslims and European identity.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

This book addresses the question of what it means, and has meant, to be "European," covering the period from Antiquity to the end of the twentieth century. The essays discuss questions of politics, law, religion, culture, literature, and even affectivity in a broad account of how a distinctive European identity has grown over the centuries and its place in the future evolution of the European Union. In the massive literature of European integration, no other book takes such a long historical perspective, and none other deals directly with the question of identity.

Synopsis:

Discusses how a distinctive 'European' identity has grown over the centuries, especially with the EU.
