Europe, the State, and Globalisation
Pearson Longman, 2005 - 456 pages
"Europe, the State and Globalisation" explores the interplay between the state and state sovereignty, nationalism, European integration and globalisation. It provides essential foundations in all these areas, while using stimulating arguments to prompt discussion and provoke interest in the relationships between these processes.
Throughout, "Europe, the State and Globalisation" addresses various issues of historical and theoretical importance, including:
the institutions of the European Union
integration theory, regional policy, multilevel governance and EU enlargement
International Relations theory
the nature and impact of globalisation
the challenges of transnational government
the changing nature of the state
"Europe, the State and Globalisation" is an excellent resource for students taking courses in European politics, globalisation studies, international politics and International Relations.
