Beschreibung

This book examines the transformation of Europe from the perspective of social theory. The idea of Europeanization is used as an alternative to European integration to indicate a turning away from simplistic notions of societal integration that dominate mainstream European studies. A central objective of the book is to argue that Europeanization should be theorized in terms of societal transformations rather than in terms of polity-building or institutions of governance.

Pressestimmen

'Rethinking Europe provides a thought-provoking and important contribution to European studies. In this book, Gerard Delanty and Chris Rumford propose to develop a new vision of Europe. This vision does not focus on defining what is distinctivelyEuropean but explores the cosmopolitan quality of Europe.' - Milena Buchs, University of Southampton Rethinking Europe makes a valuable contribution to the question of how political entities such as nation states, the European Union and a 'global polity' are related to 'society building'. - Sociology, Book Reviews
