About the book
What do Europeans have in common apart from the rights and duties deriving from the treaties? Is there such a thing as 'Europeanness' in the sense of a common identity? Can rights serve as a unifying factor in the new EU of 27 member states? And what are the sources of human identity as such?
Corina Filpescu Journal Compilation, Blackwell Publishing
"This book, which is an amalgam of information linking together different disciplines, makes an original contribution to various fields of social sciences.
Overall, the book provides an interesting overview of issues linked to Europe such as the risk of orientalization and placing Eurpoeannes within a wider international perspective, as well as providing a deeper analysis of issues such as the 'conceptual transfer' problem.
The significance of the book is that it sheds light on a broader individual conception of culture and introduces a new understanding of national identity."
This book should be essential reading for every critical thinker, especially those working in the fields of EU studies."
