Description
This book offers a critical portrait of the European Union, the core continental countries within it, and the issue of its further expansion into Asia. It opens with a consideration of the origins and outcomes of European integration since the Second World War, and then moves to more detailed accounts of political and cultural developments in the three principal states of the original Common Market: France, Germany and Italy. A third section explores the interrelated histories of Cyprus and Turkey that pose a leading geopolitical challenge to the Community. The book ends by tracing ideas of European unity from the Enlightenment to the present, and their bearing on the future of the Union.

Sheer pleasure . . . one of the best political, historical and literary essayists of the age. TIMES LITERARY SUPPLEMENT
