Essays by internationally respected authorities recast the broader themes of European integration and the impact of globalization in light of the most recent conceptual approaches. While focusing on Great Britain, France, Germany, and Russia, the essays also provide in-depth coverage of Scandinavia, Central/Eastern Europe, and Southern Europe.
