The Idea of Europe: From Antiquity to the European Union (Woodrow Wilson Center Press)
by Anthony Pagden (Editor)


Review
"All of these thought-provoking essays raise critical and often unanswerable questions. Their immersion in theory means that the intellectual fruits require time to digest, but the diversity of perspectives provides a valuable testing ground to any reader who claims to understand Europe. Highly recommended for graduate students and faculty." Choice

Product Description
This book addresses the question of what it means, and has meant, to be "European," covering the period from Antiquity to the end of the twentieth century. The essays discuss questions of politics, law, religion, culture, literature, and even affectivity in a broad account of how a distinctive European identity has grown over the centuries and its place in the future evolution of the European Union. In the massive literature of European integration, no other book takes such a long historical perspective, and none other deals directly with the question of identity.
