Inventing Europe

Front Cover
Springer, Apr 19, 1995 - Social Science - 187 pages
A critical analysis of the idea of Europe and the limits and possibilities of a European identity in the broader perspective of history. This book argues that the crucial issue is the articulation of a new identity that is based on post-national citizenship rather than ambivalent notions of unity.
